Turning to TV to tell students about taxes

Understanding taxes is the subject of a new instructional television series for grades 9 through 12 which will soon be made available at no cost to schools in all states and territories of the United States.

The series, which is scheduled for release in May 1984, is being developed by the Agency for Instructional Television in association with the Joint Council on Economic Education.

It is intended for use with the Internal Revenue Service's educational program on taxation.

The new series is an effort to expand resources for taxation education by using instructional television and other widely available audiovisual materials.

The new series will attempt to link taxation issues and fiscal policy to high school courses, such as social studies, business education, and economics.

Subjects being considered for coverage by the series include: why there are taxes; how taxes and tax exemptions can influence behavior; how changes in taxes can affect employment and inflation rates, and what constitutes a fair tax.
