students attending california state universities should get ready to pay more for tuition this fall.(grant) california state universities are considering raising tuition for the second year in a row. the board of trustees say governor brown's proposed state budget is only offering a fraction of what the 23 campuses need. the trustees discussed a proposal that will raise in-state tuition by 228 dollars for the 20-18...20-19 academic year. an increase was approved last year, for the first time since 20-11. the university of california regents also tried to raise tuition last week... but the vote was postponed until may. (vicki) this year, you'll actually have until april 17th -- since tax day -- falls on a sunday to file your taxes. but regardless of the extra days, there are a number of
good reasons for getting those taxes filed early. for one -- if you're getting a refund, you'll get it sooner. and if you owe the i-r-s money, it also helps to file early. you'll have more time to figure out exactly how you'll pay that tax bill. filing early can also prevent tax fraud. the i-r-s has software that flags duplicate returners. so, once you get your return filed and on record, it makes it harder for a scammer to file a second one and grab your refund.
