The US tax code section is complex and full of references to other code sections. WHAT IF, JUST WHAT IF, after clicking through all references, you land at the final code section that just says "go f*ck yourself"? Client - "Hey, we're thinking of doing this one transaction, what is the tax consequence?" Me - "go f*ck yourself"
