Federal Income Tax Guide: Statutes/Court Rules


The Internal Revenue Code is found at Title 26 of the United States Code and contains all statutes covering income, estate and gift, excise, and employment tax.

The print version of the United States Code (U.S. Government Printing Office) is the official government publication.  A new edition is published every six years with supplements issued  in the intervening years.

The following publications reproduce the Code, include case summaries and other research references, and are updated more frequently than the official version:

United States Code Annotated and the United States Code Service include all 54 Titles of the U.S. Code and are arranged by Title number.  Also included are historical notes and cross references.  The print version is updated annually with cumulative pocket supplements.

Tax Court Rules

The United States Tax Court Rules of Practice and Procedure include 34 Titles and are freely available for download.
