This new title is one of six releases from the LexisNexis Graduate Tax Series. Tax Crimes, Second Edition (2015) embodies the dual goals established for the LexisNexis Graduate Tax Series: to provide graduate tax students with a solid foundation in the applicable rules and to enhance their skills in reading and applying complex statutes and regulations. To this end, the Assigned Readings emphasize the Code sections and other rule-based materials, including: the Department of Justice Criminal Tax Manual, the Internal Revenue Manual, the United States Sentencing Guidelines, and statutes governing other crimes which frequently are charged together with tax crimes, such as conspiracy, false statement, bankruptcy fraud, and currency offenses. This book addresses the numerous substantive and procedural issues that arise in the investigation, prosecution, and defense of tax crimes and related offenses. The early chapters of the book map the topography, providing an overview of criminal tax, describing the crimes under the Code and related crimes under other statutes, and developing the elements of and principal defenses to tax crimes. The middle chapters take a "life cycle" approach, tracking the stages of a criminal tax case from investigation to pretrial, trial, post-trial, and sentencing. Subsequent chapters address ancillary issues such as the forfeitures, disabilities, publicity, ethics, and civil tax liability and penalties. The concluding chapter summarizes the course and ties the various topics together with a comprehensive Problem. This eBook features links to for further legal research options.

'Richly documented and convincingly presented' -- New Society Mods and Rockers, skinheads, video nasties, designer drugs, bogus asylum seeks and hoodies. Every era has its own moral panics. It was Stanley Cohen’s classic account, first published in the early 1970s and regularly revised, that brought the term ‘moral panic’ into widespread discussion. It is an outstanding investigation of the way in which the media and often those in a position of political power define a condition, or group, as a threat to societal values and interests. Fanned by screaming media headlines, Cohen brilliantly demonstrates how this leads to such groups being marginalised and vilified in the popular imagination, inhibiting rational debate about solutions to the social problems such groups represent. Furthermore, he argues that moral panics go even further by identifying the very fault lines of power in society. Full of sharp insight and analysis, Folk Devils and Moral Panics is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand this powerful and enduring phenomenon. Professor Stanley Cohen is Emeritus Professor of Sociology at the London School of Economics. He received the Sellin-Glueck Award of the American Society of Criminology (1985) and is on the Board of the International Council on Human Rights. He is a member of the British Academy.
