Professors James Repetti and Diane Ring, Introduction to United States International Taxation, Sixth Edition

Newton, MA—Professors James Repetti and Diane Ring are co-authors of the new edition of Introduction To United States International Taxation (Wolters Kluwer/Aspen Publishers), a well-known reference work for the tax community, available now in both hardcover and paperback.

According to the publisher’s website, the new edition “provides an introduction to the application of the United States international taxation system to taxpayers investing or transacting business in the US and other countries…in a relatively brief and manageable form, it sets forth the principles adopted by the US in taxing US or foreign individuals and corporations as they invest, work, or carry on a trade or business in the US or abroad.”

“We hope it continues the great tradition of excellence by Paul McDaniel and [BC Law professor emeritus] Hugh Ault, who wrote the first five editions of the book,” said Repetti and Ring in a joint statement.

The inaugural holder of the William J. Kenealy, S.J. Chair, Professor Repetti is co-author of the texts, Partnership Income Taxation, Introduction to United States International Taxation, Federal Wealth Transfer Taxation, Problems in Federal Wealth Transfer Taxation, and Tax Aspects of Organizing and Operating a Business. He is also a contributing author to the treatises, Comparative Income Taxation: A Structural Analysis and to The International Guide to Partnerships.

Professor Repetti's numerous influential articles on taxation include "Democracy and Opportunity: A New Paradigm in Tax Equity" in the Vanderbilt Law Review, "Textualism and Tax Shelters" in the Virginia Tax Review and "Democracy, Taxes and Wealth" in the NYU Law Review. He has acted as a consultant to the Internal Revenue Service and Justice Department, and has appeared as a commentator in publications such as the Christian Science Monitor, Forbes Magazine, the Wall Street Journal and Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly.
