Tax Time 2018 for Iowa Taxpayers

Tags

, , , ,

Every year the West Des Moines Public Library does an awesome job putting together a resource on where to find all the information you need about tax forms for both federal and Iowa taxes. The only things that are really different here at Kirkwood is we do NOT carry ANY paper tax forms and do NOT keep masters at either Kirkwood library branch.

If you have a tax form you need from Kirkwood, it will be available on Eaglenet, but before it will show up you’ll have to fill out the consent form saying you agree to them making it available electronically. If you don’t electronically give consent via Eaglenet the tax form will be mailed to you as a paper copy.

IRS

General Tax Forms, Iowa and Federal

Find links for Iowa and Federal forms, addresses, etc. here (updated Jan. 2018):
http://www.wdmlibrary.org/research/tax-forms-and-information

NOTE: Due to Congress changing tax law so close to the deadline not all forms might be available right away. If what you need isn’t shown, check back soon.

Or in PDF form here:
http://www.wdmlibrary.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/TAXINFO.pdf

Reminders:

  • The Iowa Department of Revenue has done away with the Iowa Short Form. Both individual tax payers and corporations now have to use what was previously referred to as the long form.
  • Direct deposit is no long available for refunds if you file Iowa state paper tax returns. They ARE available if you file electronically.

Other tips and helpful information for filing Iowa taxes:
https://tax.iowa.gov/sites/files/idr/documents/2017filing.pdf

Also, check the definitions of these basic tax terms:

IDR

VITA

Kirkwood Accounting student volunteers will again be assisting students, staff, faculty and the community with tax preparation. Assistance will be given for 2017 federal and Iowa tax returns to qualified taxpayers. This is a free service sponsored by the IRS and Kirkwood. Appointments are required. Email VITA@kirkwood.edu or leave a voice message at ext. 4521.

Kirkwood VITA does NOT complete complicated returns that include self-employment income, extensive tax credits, stock sales, non-resident returns or other tax issues that require major documentation or tax research.

Income Tax Forms for F1 Visa Students

All non-resident F1 visa holders are required to file both 1040NR and the 8843 forms. Even if you did not earn any wages, these forms still must be completed. Click on https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040nr.pdf and https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8843.pdf  to download and print the forms.

New Books: Odds and Ends 42

Info to Know Spring 2018

Here is a collection of information of things on the Kirkwood Community College Campuses that you should know about!

You have to learn to speak the language of college, but you don’t have to start out knowing it.

Experiment with a different browser to start the school year.

What’s Kirkwood’s Student Body like?

Check out some words of advice from the U.S. Department of Education:

App

Kirkwood has a new app. Find instructions on where to find it.

Add-Drop

Learn more about it here:
http://www.kirkwood.edu/site/index.php?p=32303 To add a course, if the class has not met yet, students can call One Stop.  For any class that has met, students will need to fill out a form. Get the form from the department’s office and ask them about the particular class. For the first week you just need the instructor’s signature. The following week you also need the Dean’s. For Distance Learning classes in general check this page.

Students may drop classes through Eaglenet until the last day set on the academic calendar each semester. To check for the important dates for any particular class double check here.

Add-Drop Tuition Swap

Kirkwood no longer gives a full refund to students who both drop a class and add a class in the second week of classes. This is sometimes called the second week “wash” or “tuition swap” – Kirkwood refunds 50% for all drops in the second week for 16-week classes. Find Full Refund Policy: http://www.kirkwood.edu/catalog/current/refund-of-tuition_0.htm

Advisor

Don’t know who your advisor is? Log in to EagleNet and view “My Profile” to see your advisor’s name.

Find answers to basic questions about class scheduling type issues here. NOTE that important dates listed on the PDF are NOT current.

Alcohol and Drugs

Alcohol is never allowed on campus without special written permission.

There is only one ATM available on the Cedar Rapids campus. It’s located near the cafeteria by Student Life and the US Bank campus branch. On the Iowa City campus there is one available next to the One Stop Office.

Book List

There are two ways to get into your list of textbooks you need for all your classes.

To find your list of textbooks
1. Log into Eaglenet
2. Click on “My Class Schedule” under Academic Profile
3. Select term from Drop Down menu and click on Submit
4. Click on “Click here to access Booklist”
5. A second tab will pop up and ask you to log in with your k-number and password
6. This will generate a list for all your classes. They are very brief entries but will give you an abbreviated title, ISBN, and which class it’s for.

To go directly to the “second tab” (aka Step 5 above) go to http://www.kirkwood.edu/booklist

Books The Library Doesn’t Own

The library doesn’t collect textbooks (scroll to textbooks below), but for any other type of book we’ll be glad to try to help you get a copy either by buying it or by borrowing a copy from another library. This is also true for articles we don’t have in full text.
https://kirkwoodlibrary.wordpress.com/2016/06/09/what-if-the-library-doesnt-own-a-book-you-want/

Book Club

Share your love of books and reading with other student readers. Read what you like. Share your thoughts. Make and take reading recommendations. Each semester we will decide on additional activities and determine if we want to focus on any reading themes. Contact club advisor Julie Petersen, julie.petersen@kirkwood.edu.

Book Return – Library

On the Cedar Rapids campus you can return books you’ve checked out in the drop at the circulation desk, the slot right outside the library doors, and the outside bookdrop. You can find the outside bookdrop right here:
https://kirkwoodlibrary.wordpress.com/2013/11/07/bookdrop-in-new-location

At the Iowa City branch return books at the desk and in the library book return box (a large black box) across from the library doors. There is also a book return box available in the parking lot.

You can return books at the office at any of the centers.

Bus Passes for Free

The EagleCard Office at the help desk in the Allsop lab in Neilsen Hall, Student Life, Rec Center, and both bookstores can attach free bus stickers to the EagleCards that will allow students to ride Cedar Rapids bus routes 7 and 7a for free. You MUST have the sticker attached to your EagleCard each year before you can ride free. The year runs from August to August. The stickers do not cost anything, you must simply be an enrolled Kirkwood student. Students must get an EagleCard from the Eaglecard office listed above for use to verify attendance and k number.

If you’re waiting for a Cedar Rapids bus and wonder where it’s at, simply go to Ridecrt.com. Through an interactive map, click on the route number and an arrow will show exactly which street or intersection your bus is at and watch an arrow representing the bus as it moves along down the street. Remember the routes that come to Kirkwood are 7 and 7a.

Here is the map and the route schedule. It changed July 1, 2017 to these new routes.

Calendar

Lactation Room

Kirkwood supports new mothers with designated lactation rooms. The ones in Cedar Rapids are in Cedar Hall Room 226 and Linn Hall Room 2104. Sign-up sheets are available in the room. Campus Health is to be used as a backup location only. If you have questions, please contact Human Resources.

The lactation room in Iowa City is located by the One Stop Office.

Late Registration Policy

The last day to register on EagleNet for a class is the day before it starts. Once a class starts, you’ll need faculty and possibly dean signatures to add it. If you have any doubts or questions about your schedule, don’t wait to talk to your advisor – make an appointment today! If an instructor signs a Late Registration form to let you into their class, your next stop is not One Stop. It’s the department office staff, who will process the form. Scroll up to Add-Drop for more information.

Don’t know who your advisor is? Log in to EagleNet and view “My Profile” to see your advisor’s name.

Library Textbook Policy

The library policy is to NOT purchase textbooks. This is because given the wide range of titles used by different instructors even within a single class, the cost would be prohibitive to provide them all. If any instructor or the department wants to loan us a copy of the textbook they use, we will be glad to put it on reserve. Feel free to ask your instructor if they haven’t yet put a copy on reserve.

Microsoft Office

Do you know that as a Kirkwood student you’re entitled to a free download of Microsoft 365? This is a stripped down version of Office, but should work for any assignment you get a Kirkwood. Follow the step by step directions. Particularly note the form they want for the e-mail.

New Student Orientation

Orientation is mandatory for all new students and offered on several dates prior to the start of the term. During orientation, you’ll work with academic advisors, current students and professional staff members to get ready for your transition to Kirkwood Community College. At orientation students will:

  • meet with academic advisors to learn about your core classes, degree requirements in programs you’re considering and course selections for the semester
  • talk with Kirkwood faculty members about academic expectations learn about student involvement, financial aid, campus technology, community expectations, and other aspects of the social and academic environment at Kirkwood,
  • meet and get to know other new students,
  • receive your EagleCard (student ID),

You can buy a package at the Bookstore or other retailer, but if you just need a page or two or something really custom you can print your own.

Old Class Descriptions

If you need an old class description to show someone whether they would be willing to accept a class or not for some purpose, find it here:
http://www.kirkwood.edu/catalogarchive

One Stop

The One Stop office manages general student business including, but not limited to, financial aid status, graduation inquiries, transcript requests, course or enrollment verification, diploma ordering or information on deferment. The One Stop office is located at Kirkwood Hall 2nd floor.

    DIRECTIONS: Driving from Kirkwood Boulevard, enter the south entrance to campus and take the first left. Drive toward the buildings and Kirkwood Hall, which is to the north of the parking lots. There is visitor parking in the Blue Permit parking lot. Walking, go to Kirkwood Hall, which is located down the skywalk from the cafeteria in Iowa Hall. Once at the end of the skywalk, the One Stop office is the first office on the right. For specific questions, please contact the One Stop office at 319-398-7600.

Parking Permits and Parking and Traffic Tickets

Students are NOT required to get parking permits to park on Kirkwood lots, but are required to follow basic parking rules such as parking in designated areas only. If you get a Kirkwood parking ticket, pay at the Cashier’s Office in One Stop.

Breaking city laws, for example parking in handicap spots without a handicap permit, can get you a regular parking ticket from the city where regular fines apply.

Password Reset

Access this self-service web page to establish or change your K-number password. For more information. You can log on to change your password from any machine that you don’t have to use your Kirkwood ID to log into on or off campus.

Prayer Room

There will be a prayer room available for the spring semester in 355 Benton Hall from noon-2:00pm on Fridays. You may visit the International Programs office 1154 Linn Hall on the Cedar Rapids Main campus if you have any questions. This service is available to all students.

Printing and Student Print Quota

There are various places around campus where students can print. The two main ones are the library and the computer lab at both campuses. Both have black and white and color printers. Scroll up to Color Printing.

Registered students are given a $36 print/copy ration of play money per semester.  This is a way to ration printing and is NOT real money either from the college or from any fee students pay. It could as easily be known as points or coupons, etc. As students print or copy, 5 cents will be deducted for each black and white page, and 10 cents will be deducted for each color page. Access this page to check your current balance.

AGAIN this is NOT from any real money fee or any money payment made by either the student or the college. NO charge for $36 was added to your tuition bill. NO unused portion of the ration will be given to you as cash. You can NOT spend it anywhere on campus for anything other than copies or prints.

The balance means balance like a checkbook or savings account, not balance like a credit card. Meaning it isn’t saying that you owe money when it shows a balance, it’s what you have to use yet.

Most students don’t use their entire ration during a semester. If you haven’t used all of yours it will be carried forward to the next semester. At the end of the summer everyone’s balance is wiped out and you start again with $36, but don’t worry about that remember that it isn’t real money.

If you would use all $36 during the semester and need more, you CAN put real money on the card and that won’t disappear at the reset. However, it is not refundable.

As a student when you print documents, you will see a pop-up that will inform you of the cost of that print job and the remaining balance. Click to confirm that you want to print it. If a student sends a job to the printer that is more than 24 pages,  an additional dialogue box  pops up asking them to confirm that they want to print that much.

When as a student, you use your k# to login to the copier, you will see your name and your current balance on the display pad.

Check out this site find out your current balance, add real money to your account (which will never vanish, like the play money ration does), or to dispute a print charge. It’s easy to remember the website it’s the Kirkwood address plus print, so http://www.kirkwood.edu/print but not that easy to find a link to.

Student Code of Conduct

Specific rules and regulations Kirkwood students are required to follow and the possible consequences for violation.

Student Email

The Kirkwood student email system is the primary tool for official communication from the college. All current Kirkwood students are expected to have a k# (college id) and a student email account. Important information from your department, as well as notifications from advising, enrollment and financial aid, will NOT be sent via postal mail or to a personal e-mail address, but will be sent to your student e-mail.

The format of your Kirkwood student email address is:
firstname-lastname@student.kirkwood.edu
(Example: jane-smith@student.kirkwood.edu)

If your first and last name are being used already, a number will be added to your email address to make it unique. Upon graduation or transfer to another institution, student email accounts are deactivated (the following August 31st). Any saved documents and/or emails will not be accessible after that date.

Upon registration for at least one credit class, students will be provided a student email account. (Library Note: Although we haven’t seen this lately, sometimes students have had issues with attachments from the various free e-mail sites opening on campus – Yahoo, G-Mail, Hotmail, etc. – if an attachment absolutely, positively has to get there we recommend using your Kirkwood e-mail to send it or even better send it to both.)

Student Print Quota – Scroll up to Printing and Print Quota

Study Abroad

YOU can study Abroad.  Kirkwood offers over 15 different short-term study abroad programs each year and there are programs for everyone.  The programs and applications are found here at https://kirkwood.studioabroad.com  You are also welcome to stop by Linn Hall 1154 to speak with a Study Abroad Advisor if you have any questions.  Scholarships for study abroad are available.

Talon

Talon is a suite of online tools that facilitate online classes. Instructors in face-to-face courses often deliver materials and extend your learning with Talon. Most online courses operate fully within Talon or at least use it as a frame or portal to get you to the materials you need and to turn in assignments.

If your instructor told you to use or find something and you don’t know where it is (a handout, an article, a place to turn something in), check your Talon page for that class first.

Often the first thing we suggest for people having Talon problems is to try a different browser, like Firefox or Chrome. You can check with the student helpdesk, but you may be directed to the help line through Talon which is available 24/7 at 1-877-478-7074. If you have questions about coursework, contact your instructor.

Textbooks –Scroll up to Book List of Textbooks to find out which books you’ll need and to Library Textbook Policy for information about what’s available in the library.

Tutoring – It’s FREE!
Free tutoring is available to every student taking a class for credit. Stop by 2071 Cedar Hall or call 319-398-5425 to speak to someone in Learning Services.

Tuition

Tuition cost is set per credit hour, but varies by Iowa resident, non-resident, and international categories.

Vending Machine Issues

If a vending machine takes your money or if you have another vending machine issue, in Cedar Rapids report to Student Life on the 2nd floor of Iowa Hall across from the bank by the cafeteria. In Iowa City report it at the One Stop office. Find out more about the vending machines by the Cedar Rapids Kirkwood library here and the rest of them on campus by checking with Student Life.

Veterans

Be sure to check out all the resources on the Cedar Rapids campus including the Veterans Lounge.
http://www.kirkwood.edu/va

Veterans in Iowa City are eligible for all benefits but they do not have a lounge.

Wireless

Free WiFi is available inside of every Kirkwood building.

Withdrawn From Class By Instructor

If you have a  Deregistration or Administrative Withdraw from a class for non-attendence, here’s what you do.

Work Study

To get work study position around campus, start at One Stop and make sure you qualify for Work Study. Then you can apply for specific jobs currently open around campus.
