UNDERSTANDING TAXES INTRODUCTION

We spend a large part of our working year just paying for taxes.  For most of us, it is a regular part of life and work.  We are taxed when we work, and often taxed when we make a purchase.  Besides federal income taxes, we have state taxes, personal property taxes, sales taxes, capital gains taxes, and more.  When April 15th draws near, and tax returns must be mailed to the Internal Revenue Service, many suddenly wonder what taxes they owe, how much they can deduct, and how can they pay less.

On April 15th, there are three taxes due, depending on the state you live in.  These include federal, state, and city taxes.  Depending on your income for the prior year, you will pay taxes.

Use the following lessons to teach and learn more about taxes:
