Understanding taxes - The basics and beyond webinar recording available

By Beth Ziehmer

December 19, 2019

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 tax law changes implemented in 2018.

To help face those challenges, Carolyn Thomas of Thomas & Associates, CPAs, LLC provided important information and guidance about what you should know when looking at 2018 and 2019 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 were discussed.

The recording is available at mappingyourfuture.org/services/webinararchive.cfm and the presentation handout is available at mappingyourfuture.org/Downloads/MappingYourFutureUnderstandingTaxes2019.pdf .

Information on upcoming webinars, such as "Strategies for making the most of scholarship applications" scheduled for January 30 and February 4, can be found at mappingyourfuture.org/services/webinars.cfm. You can also provide input for the scholarship applications webinar.
