Upcoming GSA/ISSS tax workshops for Grads

GSA Tax Workshop information: https://graduatestudentassociation.sites.ucsc.edu/events/gsa-tax-seminar/

Every year, the GSA sponsors a tax workshop where graduate students can get assistance with filing their US taxes.

This seminar will feature a 30-40 minute presentation by a tax professional followed by a tax workshop in which tax professionals will go over your tax forms with you and give you personalized advice. Bring your tax forms (1098-T, W-2, 1042-S, 1099-Misc, if you have them) and don’t miss out on this great opportunity!

While the usual location for holding the workshops is the Graduate Student Commons, for 2021, the workshops will take place online.

The workshop dates for 2021 are:

  • February 25, Thursday, 5:30pm – 7:30 pm (Zoom link)
  • March 15, Monday, 5:30pm – 7:30 pm (Zoom link)
