The national court, which is based in Washington, D.C., first cited the treatise in its opinion in Auker v. Commissioner in 1998. Since then, it has cited the book an additional nine times. Bogdanski’s book was also cited by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in 2013 and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina in 2008.

Federal Tax Valuation has been updated twice a year since it was initially published by Thomson Reuters Tax & Accounting in 1995. Chapters in the treatise are rewritten as developments in tax law occur. “Each chapter has been completely rewritten at least once since the first publication,” Bogdanski explained.

A recent review of the treatise noted, “Although this is a ‘single subject’ treatise, it is an extremely important one…. This is a most ‘valuable’ fixture in the catalog of taxation literature.”

In addition to Federal Tax Valuation, Bogdanski has used his expertise in tax law to coauthor Federal Income Taxation of S Corporations with Joel Kuntz and a multivolume U.S. International Taxation set with Kuntz and Robert Peroni. He has also written dozens of articles and columns about tax law in national journals over the past four decades.

Bogdanski teaches income tax, corporate tax, estate and gift tax, and partnership tax at Lewis & Clark and supervises the school’s tax moot court team. He has won the Leo Levenson Award for Teaching Excellence five times since he joined the faculty in 1986.
