Here’s a deadline that’s not listed on your syllabus. Your taxes are due on April 15th! The Feds won’t let Rover do your taxes for you, but he does have some great advice for your taxing woes.
Have a clear idea of your dependency status. Avoid complications and discuss with your parents whether they plan to claim you or not. If you are not providing more than 50% of your own support, then you are not entitled to take your own personal exemption.
The American Opportunity Credit and the Lifetime Learning Credit are available for students or those who claim students. Credits can be claimed up to $2,500 if you are an eligible taxpayer.
Know what you can deduct. The cost of job hunting, resume software, and textbooks are all deductibles.
And in case you don’t get the refund you were looking for, check RoverTown for discounts specially dug up for you!
P.S. – I’m not a CPA…I’m a dog. If I could, I would refund you in bones.
