The highly controversial Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010,1 hereinafter referred to as the Tax Relief Act, which involved major political compromises, was signed into law on December 17, 2010. Although the legislation is only 33 pages in length, the budget implications are substantial and the provisions far-reaching.

A more detailed discussion of the provisions which were extended is published in volumes 4-8 of Agricultural Law2 and volumes 1 and 2 of Farm Income Tax Manual.3
