They don't teach you this stuff in school

Paid for by H&R Block

Reading, writing and math — these are all options you’d expect to see covered in a typical kid’s school day. Taxes, however? Not so much.

With the help of finance expert Farnoosh Torabi and H&R Block, we asked a bunch of kids about what they think taxes are, and how they work. Spoiler: A deduction isn’t exactly “a duck who talks to another duck and they say ‘Quack quack!'”

Taxes can be mystifying, as these kids show us, and many adults are overwhelmed by trying to file without expert guidance. This tax season, go forth with confidence knowing there’s help.
