Teach your students how to figure their taxes! This download includes the following:
- Blank Classroom Federal Tax 1040 Form
- 20 Profiles for students to choose from. Examples of profiles include Clark Kent, Mr. & Mrs. Incredible, President Obama, Beyonce and Jay-Z, Mike Wazowski, and more!
- To save you time, I have included keys for each of the 20 profiles.
- A blank profile page so that you can make more profiles to fit your class size.
This project could serve as low as a 3rd grade class who might be practicing adding and subtracting large whole numbers or a senior Econ class. This would be appropriate for math, social studies or any economy unit.
There is one multiplying decimals step, but most of the problems involve addition and subtraction. You can have students do this with or without a calculator - it really depends on what you want to accomplish with this.
Depending on the grade level, you could have students do one or multiple profiles. They can compare the advantages of filing married with a family versus single.
I hope you enjoy! Some of your students will as they learn that they will be getting a refund. Others might be disappointed to find that they owe money!
