Teacher Tip -- CALCULATE: Completing a 1040
Due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, no one can complete the 1040EZ anymore. We're all doing the 1040 this year. NGPF Fellow Amanda Volz explains how she uses this essential NGPF resource CALCULATE: Completing a 1040 in her classroom. BONUS: This activity is available in Spanish, too, and if you haven't reviewed the resource lately, we've added a new 5th scenario! Watch for some great tips on how to implement this activity in your classroom.
