Demystifying Taxes for Grad Students and Postdocs (Emily Roberts)

Are you intimidated by the prospect of preparing your grad student or postdoc tax return? Are you confused by the tax forms you received from your institution – or the forms you didn’t? This seminar breaks down how to calculate your taxable income from your salary, stipend, fellowship, grant, and/or scholarships; minimize your tax liability using education tax benefits; and report your income, qualified education expenses, and estimated tax paid on your tax return. It also touches on the special tax situations that may apply to students under age 24.
