1/24/19 Tax Help for Graduate and Professional Students

Dr. Richard Toolson, WSU Accounting Professor

The Professional Development Initiative Presents:

Tax Help for Graduate and Professional Students 

This workshop will look at the basics of federal income taxation as it applies to graduate and professional students who file a 1040 (not a 1040 NR) and who are not claimed by a parent on the parent’s tax return. Some of the topics to be covered are the tax treatment of revenue sources such as grants, student loans, scholarships and assistantships.  Other likely topics are the standard deduction amounts under the new law, the difference between a refundable tax credit, nonrefundable tax credit, and a deduction.   Specific credits to be addressed will be the Lifetime Learning Credit, the earned income credit and the child tax credit.
