How do I access the 1986 version of the Internal Revenue Code?
The 1986 Code is the current code (with amendments since then, of course). It is Title 26 of the US Code.
Access to the Code is available electronically through CCH IntelliConnect, BNA Tax and Accounting Center and RIA Checkpoint and here is a page with links to these Library Databases.
Hardcopies are also available in Reference.
Additional Federal Tax Research information is available from this excellent research guide from the Georgetown Law Library.
