This course is the first course in a five-course US Federal Tax Specialization. It covers and focuses on the U.S. federal tax system as it relates to individuals, employees, and sole proprietors. Key concepts covered include gross income and items that are statutorily included or excluded in it, personal and business expenses that qualify as tax deductions, and the differing tax treatments for employees versus self-employed taxpayers. Unlike many other introductory courses in tax and as part of this course’s comprehensive wrap-up, learners will be provided with practical and tangible experience reporting both income and expenses on the main individual tax return used in the US, Form 1040.

TOP REVIEWS FROM FEDERAL TAXATION I: INDIVIDUALS, EMPLOYEES, AND SOLE PROPRIETORS
This tax course was just right for me. I learned quite a bit and I would like to continue on with the specialization. I will sign up for the next one.
Completed on September 5, 2018 - excellent introduction course that can lead to a Coursera Certificate titled "U.S. Federal Taxation Specialization" sponsored by the University of Illinois.
This was a great introduction into Federal Taxation. It gave excellent examples of all of the components that go into a 1040 tax prep. I loved the course and I feel the professors did an amazing job.
I didnt see Healh insurance Explanation and forms to fill out.
Any how, this course is EXCELLENT.
THANK YOU Instructors and the rest of the team that make it posible.
