Filing income taxes can be intimidating! This consumer math activity teaches students how to file a federal income tax return that includes a Form 1040 and a Schedule 1.


Students are given a W2 for a fictional person "William A. Pay" who works as a teacher and paid some student loan interest last year. He had also been unemployed for part of the year, taking his unemployment compensation untaxed. Will this lead to him owing taxes to the IRS?
