The UW Tax Office will again be presenting a series of tax classes focusing on common tax issues encountered across campus. 2013 classes will be offered in two series. Series I will be a repeat of the classes that were offered in 2012. Series II will deal with more complex, focused tax issues.
NOTE: Because these classes quickly fill up, where possible, multiple sessions will be added to accommodate as many participants as possible so keep checking the tax office website if the class you would like to attend is full.
Tax classes in Series I address many of the basic tax issues that departments encounter daily. The classes are primarily for those individuals who deal with tax issues on a regular basis, but they are open to anyone who is interested in furthering their basic tax knowledge. Additional classes and dates may be added if there is sufficient demand.
