Tax Help 101

Mark Metevier from Student Activities wrote:

[…] I have found that a shocking number of our students do not know they have to file a federal and a state(s) tax return. HR Block has generously agreed to come onto campus on Wednesday at 3:00 PM in the SCC Multipurpose Room for a Tax Help Session. There will be a short presentation on what students should look out for as first time file-ers/ as student file-ers and of course there will be a questions and answer part. […] I had this presentation for my student employees last year and it was a huge help for all of them. I strongly suggest that all student [employees] attend.
