FinCap Friday: A Taxing Surprise

In early 2021, many Americans were surprised by their income tax returns. There are so many ways that people reached a point of frustration and confusing whether it is related to personal income taxes, business taxes, or investment taxes. In this episode of FinCap Friday, we take a look at some recent data about the tax situations of many Americans as the tax season progresses. 

If you're short on time, try our simplified No-Tech option containing embedded questions right in the slide deck! Or you can access the EdPuzzle version instead!


Check out all of our FinCap Friday episodes here. They're not date-dependent so any of the 105+ in our catalog dating back to August 2018 can work throughout the coming year!
