Demystifying Taxes for Grad Students [Graduate Division]

March 22 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

See organizers’ website for details.

Are you intimidated by the prospect of preparing your grad student tax return? Are you confused by the tax forms you received from your institution – or the forms you didn’t? This seminar breaks down how to calculate your taxable income from your salary, stipend, fellowship, grant, and/or scholarships; minimize your tax liability using education tax benefits; and report your income, qualified education expenses, and estimated tax paid on your tax return. It also touches on the special tax situations that may apply to students under age 24.

 

About the speaker: Dr. Emily Roberts is a personal finance educator specializing in early-career PhDs. Through her business, Personal Finance for PhDs, she equips graduate students, postdocs, and PhDs with Real Jobs to make the most of their money. She gives seminars at universities and for associations, interviews PhDs on her podcast, serves as a money coach, and creates courses and workshops on taxes, investing, and more. Emily holds a PhD in biomedical engineering from Duke University and lives in southern CA with her husband and two children.
