Introduction

Summary

Tax law is a dynamic area where politics, law, economics, commerce and accountancy intersect. It is renowned for its complexity and intricacy; typically, the income tax law (or general tax code, if applicable) is the longest law that a country has. At least in the UK, this has been the case for centuries.
