Pay Periods, Withholdings, and Deductions, Oh My! A Tool for Teaching Basic Tax Information to Teens with Visual Impairments

box gift wrapped in $50 bill

The 2015 tax season is upon us. I can’t think of a better time of year to begin teaching tax terms and principles to your students, teens, or consumers who are blind or visually impaired. As April 15th draws near, all will hear the related buzz words: taxes, tax day, tax refund, withholdings, and deductions. Give your students the gift of being in-the-know, while preparing them for their first of many contributions to Uncle Sam: the first paycheck.

Saving you time and energy, we have written the lesson plan for you. Check out CareerConnect’s Understanding Paychecks lesson, designed to acquaint students with paychecks, pay periods, withholdings, deductions, and a W-4. Don’t stop there! Utilize the entire Money Management lesson series.
