The upcoming tax season won't be the same.

Tax reform, approved about a year ago, will impact a lot of tax filers and, as a result, will mean some changes for financial aid professionals.

As a financial aid professional, you already face many challenges in reviewing tax documents of students and parents in the verification process, and this year those challenges may increase due to those tax law changes.

To help face those challenges, register for the "Understanding taxes – The basics and beyond" webinar. During the webinar, Carolyn Thomas of Thomas & Associates, CPAs, LLC will provide important information and guidance about what you should know when looking at tax returns and tax transcripts, such as understanding who should file returns, the various tax filing statuses, and other important guidelines about earned and unearned income. Educational tax benefits also will be discussed.

Two webinar sessions are available:

We will use GoToWebinar for the webinars which can be accessed from any computer. The content will be the same at each session. Space is limited, so one participant per institution per session please. Participants may share a connection on the same computer using one registration.
