TY2015 Kent NJ Problem

The Kent problem from the old Pub 4491-W has been modified in various ways to be used as an adjunct to the TY2015 NJTax Law presentations, including the New Jersey modules.

The idea is that the instructor would alternate between Tax Law issues and entry of the corresponding parts of the Kent return in class. Ideally, students would also prepare their own copy of the Kent NJ return in class as a way to get hands-on experience with most of the TaxSlayer worksheets (and quirks).

Note: You may get different Federal Refund numbers for steps 25b through 28 (while Sch A 5b Sales Tax is higher than 5a Income Tax). You should be back in synch with the Federal Refund numbers after Step 29
