Resources for teaching about taxes

We are in the midst of tax season, so what better topic for the classroom than taxes?

This year, the Iowa Department of Revenue has a tax year 2016 Student Income Tax Packet available to help educators and students gain a better understanding on how to complete the Iowa individual income tax return. To download this free packet, visit the Department’s website.

Also available is an Iowa Tax Information for Students publication. This publication includes details about filing Iowa income tax returns in a Q&A format.

Take the time to teach your students about taxes. You never know, you might learn a thing or two as well.
