If you are new at trying to get your mind around tax preparation, don’t feel alone. It seems like once a year we are faced with a seemingly complex problem that only reveals answers a few at a time. It’s not unlike cramming for finals in that many wait until the last minute to get underway. Panic sets in and either we begin to look for an app that will provide third grade solutions, or it’s time to look for a tax preparer.
However, it seems our government has an answer for every question if you know where to look. Finding spot on answers in a friendly format is provided by using the IRS Understanding Taxes program. It’s like the answers are provided at the back of the book kind of logic. Complete with interactive tools to speed the process, it’s like a letter from home.
For teachers, this tool is made for easily adding to a school curriculum, and thereby cutting class preparation time to an easily manageable schedule. Each year the "Understand Taxes" program is updated thus assuring relevant guidelines, questions and answers.
Oklahoma Tax Attorney, Travis W. Watkins, recommends the Understanding Taxes program as a quick primer for taxing questions. Go here http://www.irs.gov/uac/Newsroom/Explore-a-Quick-and-Simple-Way-of-Understanding-Taxes for your copy.
