GWAR – DUE by 10 am on 11/23 – Research Project (GWAR) 
Research memo, client letter, newsletter and tax policy analysis. This is the GWAR portion of your MST program. This writing project uses the tax research skills gained in this class to produce a paper that is your individual effort. The paper is a minimum of 3,000 words (likely to be 4,000 – 5,000 words). You will use Harvard Bluebook citation style for legal authority (this is the case citation format we discussed in class), proper grammar, and sentence structure to produce a well-organized, thoroughly researched and analyzed, graduate level paper. Use feedback obtained on earlier drafts of portions of this assignment and practice we did in class.
Follow the format of the sample memos and letters discussed in class, as well as the practice memo you wrote earlier.
Be sure to review the grading rubric included at the end of the syllabus and the writing rubric and tips posted on Canvas. Be sure to use our grammar guide in completing this project, leaving plenty of time to proofread before submitting your project.
How to submit: Upload your project on Canvas with the file name as lastname-GWAR.doc. Be sure each section starts on a new page.
Reminder: Be sure to follow the SJSU Academic Integrity policy and additional tips discussed in class and posted to Canvas. Be sure everything you write is your summary and not that of someone else (including Congress or a judge). Where you think a quote from primary authority is warranted, be sure you use quotation marks. Plagiarism will result in a grade of zero.
