Coordinator Updates 11-04-2014

www.TaxPrep4Free.org site updates:

The new TaxPrep4Free.org Tax Law page is formatted as a table. Using the checkboxes above the table, you can select which columns you want to see. There is one row for each Pub4491 Lesson (plus rows for topics not included in Pub4491). Available columns are:

  • Link&Learn – a link to the Link&Learn CBT modules (and the Student pages). Note: Link&Learn has not been updated (yet) for TY2014 – this should happen soon.
  • Quiz – a link to electric quizzes. Note: The electronic quizzes should NOT be used at this time.
  • NTTC TY13 – AARP Foundation Tax-Aide TY2013 training decks from the NTTC (National Tax Training Committee)
  • NTTC TY14 – AARP Foundation Tax-Aide TY2014 training decks (Release 1) from the NTTC
  • Old NJ – the old Federal+NJ training decks (with and without Voice-Over).  These have been updated for TY2013, but no other changes have been made.
  • New NJ – the new improved Federal+NJ+TaxWise training decks.  Unless you need the old Voice-Over decks, these are the decks to use.  Note: These use TY2013 tax law and TaxWise so they work along with the (yet to be uploaded) Proficiency Part 1 problems.

The training decks are viewed with the PowerPoint Online Viewer.  This allows one to view the slides without needing any version of PowerPoint installed on your computer.  You can also download the deck for offline use or for editing.
