While attending the convention, MUSNA received the Most Community Projects award, which is given to a chapter who is actively involved in serving their community and promote the mission of the nursing profession.

Tax Returns

If you file your federal tax return electronically and specify direct deposit, you can expect to have the refund in your bank account in 21 days. IRS spokesman Christopher Miller says the best way to go is e-filing.  He says well over 80 percent of us in Wisconsin now file our taxes electronically. Filing electronically is more accurate than filing on paper. The error rate for filing electronically is somewhere in the neighborhood of 1 percent compared to around 20 percent for filing on paper. Miller says many people are not aware of the IRS’s Free-File program, where people with an adjusted gross income of 58 thousand dollars or less can file their federal return for no charge. The IRS homepage is at i-r-s-dot-gov. Because there are a number of scams going around, Miller also wants to remind taxpayers that the IRS will not contact you by phone, email or on social media to ask for any personal or financial information such as Social Security numbers or bank account or credit card numbers. In almost all cases, the IRS will contact you by mail.
