Plain Talk on Taxes. A Curriculum about Taxes. Understanding Tax Reform: Responsibilities and Advantages.
This manual was developed to help low-reading-level adults understand how the tax system works. It is not intended to teach them how to prepare their own taxes, but to be more familiar with the tax system and what is required of them. The manual is organized in 10 chapters that cover the following material: introduction to taxes; who files and who does not; working under the table versus formal employment; how the Internal Revenue Service defines an employee; types and sources of income; how income is reported; tax forms; making a mistake; state taxes; and choosing a tax preparer. Each chapter contains information followed by a quiz consisting of vocabulary, comprehension, and discussion. An answer key and glossary are included in the manual. Appendixes contain further information for teachers and tutors, sample tax forms, a list of Internal Revenue Service offices, and a list of eight reference sources. (KC)
