Tax season is back once again. It can always be confusing to try and figure out all the tax terminology, what forms are due, and how much you owe. For first time filers you can visit Credit Karma or the IRS website for the basics. With the overwhelming number of forms to present it can be tricky to figure out what is what and what to use. The IRS has a list of all their forms and what their uses are here.

Spring Break Returns
For the first time since the 2018-19 school year King University will be having an official spring break. Although there was one for the 2019-20 school year, it ended up being extended much longer than expected due to COVID-19. Spring break this year will last from March 5th – March 13th.
For all students staying on campus during break, the dining hall will remain open. We hope everyone enjoys a safe and fun break!
