In my class, kids pay taxes. It is all part of the classroom economy system.
Year after year, the kids are super excited to do this. (?!?!?) Go figure.
Anyway, while I continue to be baffled by the excitement of paying taxes, below you can find the kid friendly tax form I created!
I tried to make it as realistic as possible. Just like its real life counterpart, it definitely can be confusing to some. However, this is modified for kids and most kids do figure it out independently. Depending on the class I have and their needs, I sometimes walk through the form step by step with them.
This form is definitely molded to fit my own classroom economy system. I still tweak it a bit every year depending on what my class needs.
