From John Hoffmire, Director, Center on Business and Poverty, Wisconsin School of Business, Puelicher Center for Banking Education in Madison, Wis.:
The module that appears below is meant to inform credit union employees of some of the advantages of understanding tax forms. In particular, it documents three very important attributes of the tax code in the U.S. First, it describes the Earned Income Tax Credit. Second, it explains the Saver’s Credit. And third, it discusses the importance of the tax form for those who want to receive financial aid for college for themselves or their children.
