Internal Revenue Service (Dept. of Treasury), Washington, DC.
This comprehensive educational curriculum aims to teach adults about federal income taxes and the role of taxes in the economy. The unit provides the tools, lessons, and activities to teach information about taxes and tax forms. The lessons build upon each other. Two instructional modules can be used separately as workshop topics, integrated into existing credit and non-credit courses, or presented together as a comprehensive unit on taxpayer education. The first module, "Economics of Taxation," explains how taxes affect people and the economy; it includes a 20-minute video program and three lessons. The second module, "Becoming Taxwise," explains personal financial management and the process of selecting and completing the correct federal income tax forms; it includes a 20-minute video program and 11 lessons. Each lesson has discussion suggestions, activities, and a short quiz. This 1999 edition was revised by the National Coalition for Consumer Education, Inc. (NCCE) and other professional educators. Full-sized copies of all forms, charts, and figures are contained in the Appendix section. (BT)
