The tax software is TaxWise. It is the software supplied by the IRS for volunteers who prepare income tax
returns for low income taxpayer. The software will be provided to you by the instructor - it is on the CD's bound

Be sure to visit Blackboard often and check for any new announcements. Blackboard is still your
main connection with your instructor and fellow classmates. Please scroll down the announcement
page to be sure you have obtained all the announcements. I cannot control the order in which
they appear on Blackboard.
I am looking forward to working with you. Online courses are great! It maximizes your flexibility, keeps you out
of classrooms and off the road. And trying to find a parking spot? Forget about it!
