Do you hate tax season as much as I do?
Taxes are usually a headache for me because I have multiple income sources. But this year has been especially challenging due to all the changes in my life! I worked half the year as a full-time salaried employee, then moved to another state and started graduate school where I receive a full-tuition scholarship and stipend. Plus, I work as an online English tutor, which is an independent contractor position.
Yeah, it's a real pain in the rear end.
After spending an hour (or two) crying and stressed out about how to do this I spent a few hours doing internet research on graduate student taxes and wanted to share what I found with you!
A couple disclaimers:
I am not a tax expert, you should consult one if you have further questions.
As an American student, I conducted research that was relevant for me. Thus, this post is for graduate students who are citizens or residents of the United States.
I'm only talking about federal tax, you will also need to investigate your state and local taxes.
Until next time...
