Taxes, Taxes, Taxes – Christian Friends & Homeschoolers

Hello Christian Friends & Homeschoolers,

Image result for free clipart taxesTaxes, taxes, taxes. Every year as American citizens we are required to file a tax form with the federal government. One option is to file your taxes online. We find out whether we get a refund or pay additional money to the government.

Homeschoolers, I found a great site for you to teach your child about taxes. It is called kids.gov.  It is broken down into two categories: grades K-5 and grades 6-8. Listed below are the educational objectives your child will learn by using this site:

  • Explain why we pay taxes
  • List some goods and services that are paid with taxes
  • List different types of taxes and describe them
  • Explain the basic process of collecting taxes
  • State which agency monitors taxation and what could happen if taxes aren’t paid

Enjoy teaching your child about taxes!
