False  Vertical Equity is concerned with a fair rate structure which to calculate the tax on different amounts of base. False  A firm’s marginal tax rate may change in future years because the government changes the statutory rates for all taxpayers or because of a change in the firm’s circumstances. True  Managers can request the IRS to analyze a proposed transaction and conclude how the tax law should be applied. The IRS will communicate its conclusion in the form of regulations. True  The federal income tax system is notorious for the frequency with which congress changes the rules of the game. But even within this volatile tax system, some provisions are quite stable. True  In negotiating a private market transaction, each party can evaluate the tax consequences not only to itself but also to the other part. By doing so, the parties can work together to minimize the aggregate tax cost of the transaction and share the tax savings between them. True  Every item of income is ultimately characterized for tax purposes as either ordinary income or capital growth. True  In present value terms, tax costs decrease (and cash flows increase) when a tax liability is deferred until a later taxable year True  Tax costs increase (and cash flows decrease) when income is generated in a jurisdiction with a high rate. False  Tax costs increase (and cash flows decrease) when income is taxed at preferential rate because of its character. False  A tax researcher should assume that the client's initial summary of the transaction's factually accurate and complete. False  A taxpayer may request a technical advice memorandum (TAX) from the IRS regarding the appropriate tax treatment if a proposed transaction or a completed transaction for which a tax return has not yet been filed. True  Secondary authorities attempt to explain and interpret the tax law. True  Primary authority will always provide an unambiguous answer to the tax researcher's question False  After the appellate court has either affirmed or reserved the trial court's decision, the losing party may choose to argue their case at the US Court of Federal Claims.
