Filing Your Taxes
As the April 15, 2019 (Monday) tax filing deadline approaches, I want to pass along some useful information for those who may be expecting to receive a tax return. 

One of the features of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is to decrease withholdings, which results in more money in each paycheck for most Americans. This means that your refund may be different than last year. If you would like to know the personalized status of your tax refund, you can visit and select “Refund Status”. For assistance with the IRS, please visit for filing options, as well as other services and resources.

Second, her plan to promote dual enrollment opportunities so high school students can finish college quicker and with less debt.
