George Hani and Jim Gadwood Co-Author 2024-1 Supplement to Leading Treatise on Federal Tax Accounting

Washington, DC, April 26, 2024 – Miller & Chevalier Tax Controversy & Litigation Practice Lead George Hani and Tax Department Vice Chair Jim Gadwood have co-authored the first 2024 supplement for Federal Tax Accounting, originally authored by firm Senior Counsel Steve Gertzman and published by Warren, Gorham & Lamont (a Thomson Reuters company). Federal Tax Accounting is generally recognized as the leading authority on the topic and is used by many colleges, universities, and law schools. 

The newly released supplement contains completely revised and expanded sections on the economic performance requirement (Section 461(h) and Treas. Reg. § 1.461-4) and the recurring item exception (Treas. Reg. § 1.461-5). The discussion now spans thirty-five pages and integrates all prior revisions to the treatise’s discussion of these topics, which previously appeared in the supplement. 

"This is a great accomplishment following publication of a revamped Chapter 8 on accounting method changes at the end of 2023," the authors said. "We take pride in these supplements and look forward to continuing to bring new and expanded content to our readers."
