1. Make a nomination for female student leader award
Faculty and staff are invited to nominate female Marquette seniors for the Ignatian Leadership Award, presented by the Association of Marquette University Women. The Ignatian Leadership Award recognizes a graduating senior woman who has demonstrated leadership skills and volunteered her services to the Marquette and Milwaukee (or her hometown) communities. This award also honors an individual who strives to live out the Ignatian ideals through her work, volunteer efforts and commitments to family, classmates and peers.
Contact Stacy Mitz, 8-7439, for more information.
Nomination materials for the Ignatian Leadership Award are being sent to faculty and staff in campus mail. Please consider nominating one or more deserving students.
2. Special tuition tax deduction instructions needed for Form 1040
Students, parents and employees intending to claim the tuition tax deduction for calendar year 2006 will have to write in the amount of the deduction on Form 1040. Because Congress extended the tuition tax deduction credit too late for IRS printing forms, the line that would ordinarily include the credit is not printed on tax forms.
According to the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities, those filing tax returns should use line 35, “Domestic production activities deduction, attach Form 8903,” claim the deduction for college tuition and fees. Write the letter “T” on line 35 of Form 1040 and enter the eligible amount. For example: (T 4,000). You cannot take this deduction on Form 1040 A.
