We do not sell, promote, or advise anything,
but data-mining, searching, and reading tax code with the only
appropriate code tool ... your computer.
We do find every occurrence of a particular
code-term to establish precisely what is written, and what is
not written in tax law. When we say, no other rule
or statute exists - for example, regarding excluded
income, we show you how many files contain this important
code term, and how we searched for it with a computer. You can
easily verify any of the laws, rules, or code-terms in question,
and you should verify every result because it is your duty
to know and follow the law. Ignorance is no excuse.

The Code of Federal Regulations
When searching tax law, we pay close attention
to 26 CFR...

the official interpretation of the IRC"
The Code of Federal Regulations are the rules, written
in plain English, which both the public and the IRS must follow:
"The Service is bound by the
Revenue Manual, 184.108.40.206.3.4
Since "the Service is bound," we can be sure that

degree to understand them. See How to Search and Search Examples.
