The Hows of Taxes Tour

Teaching taxes can be accomplished with a traditional approach - students can complete downloaded worksheets, classroom activities, and assessment pages. If preferred, students can take part in interactive activities and simulations online.

What are the Hows and the Whys?

Understanding Taxes is divided into two distinct areas. The Hows of Taxes show students how to apply tax principles, while The Whys of Taxes explain tax history and theory.

The Hows of Taxes

Use lessons plans to guide your instruction as you introduce, develop, and conclude tax lessons. The tax tutorials can be used as your students' personal tax tutor, guiding them as they learn the basic concepts behind tax preparation. Check out the complete list of lesson materials that are available in The Hows of Taxes.
