This research guide is a selective guide to assist the legal researcher in conducting research in the area of Federal Tax Law. It is not comprehensive in scope or intended to be a catchall source, but rather to act as a starting point for the researcher to find additional sources and relevant information. Since this guide is focused on federal taxation, it does not concern the laws of a particular state.
The guide is organized according to the topics listed to the left, in the guide outline.
In the sections of the guide focusing on print materials, the "location" provides the call number for a work. Clicking on the title takes a user to the relevant entry in the catalog. The letter abbreviations in parentheses reveal which campuses hold the title: “AA” indicates Ann Arbor, “AH” Auburn Hills, “GR” Grand Rapids, “L” Lansing, and "TB" Tampa Bay. Where possible, guide sections about statutes link to the appropriate law.

- CCH Intelliconnect Database
- Government Printing Office’s Federal Document System (http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/)
