Welcome to the hot month of February. If it isn’t hot outside, at least it’s hot in the primary states this month. On page 6, I’ve included a time chart of events to happen before a new president takes office. There’ll be articles in future issues of EEN on political parties, issues, the final nominees, and the electoral process.
Many new workers in the country do not realize that they might be entitled to a tax refund. If your students have jobs, mention that in February, they may get a W-2 form to show how much they earned in 2011, and how much tax was taken out. Next month, we’ll have one of the simpler tax forms for students to practice with.
