The Mysteries of the 1040 Form and Other Tax Basics

date Wednesday, 26 March 2014 time 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

👤 Erica Zimmerman, Gabrielle Sims, Michelle Kuchinsky 🏢 Cleveland Park Neighborhood Library


Taught by three certified tax volunteers, this class will cover the history of tax forms and explain how to fill them out. We’ll provide two hypothetical tax return situations and we will work as a class to fill out the returns. (Spoiler alert: There will be some tricky tax credits/deductions/dependents to maneuver through.) You’ll learn the intricacies of the tax system (and the intention of its original policies) and uncover the fun — yes, we said fun! — and enigmatic aspects of the tax return process.

Please meet in the library’s first-floor meeting room.
