Student Part Time Job

Christopher Said:

What type of PART-TIME job is perfect for a college student?

We Answered:

Try a Library or a Bookstore employee. As a bookstore employee you can find some discounts in your books. And as a Library employee you will be close to the books, so you can find a lot of information and even do homeworks while you are working. Good luck.

Jim Said:

My daughter is a full time college student w/ part time job?

We Answered:

Assuming your daughter can be claimed as a dependent on your tax return, she must file if her income from work is more than $5,700. Even if her earnings are less than $5,700, if she had any federal or state income tax withheld she will want to file to have those withholdings refunded.

Responding to your additional details: If you are able to claim her as a dependent, there is no reason for you not to do so. If she can be claimed as a dependent on someone else's tax return, whether or not that person actually claims her, she cannot take her own exemption.

Claude Said:

Financial Aid, married, full time student, part time job?

We Answered:


Married students are automatically classified as independent students for financial aid purposes. Your household consists of you and your wife (and any children or other dependents that the two of you are supporting) - and that's the household that the Department of Education is concerned with as far as evaluating your qualification for financial aid. You don't need your parents' returns.

Of course you'll qualify for financial aid - as long as you are both US citizens or permanent residents. As a male, you must have registered with the Selective Service System within 30 days of your 18th birthday, or that oversight would make you ineligible.

What kinds of aid - and how much aid you might receive are far different questions, which no one can answer without knowing a lot more about your household and your financial circumstances. The FAFSA has 102 questions this year, and all of that information goes into determining your eligibility.

Complete the FAFSA - and answer the questions - as directed - about your financial situation (plus your wife's). Good luck!

Thomas: You're the male, my friend. I presume that your wife is not. Women are not required to register with the Selective Service. You mentioned that she's newly arrived in the States, so I'll repeat my comment that you and your wife must both be US citizens or permanent residents in order to apply for Federal Student Aid. If your wife is in the process of being granted citizenship or residency, she will have to wait until that process is completed. If one of you qualifies and the other does not, only the one who qualifies is eligible for financial aid.

I'm 16, full time student, part-time job, taxes??

We Answered:

If you get a W2 you do have too. If you go to Turbo Tax online it just guides you through it, also you could have your parents help you too.

Jeffery Said:

I'm 16 years old student working part time job.. making 7 dollars an hour..?

We Answered:

Bear in mind that you are only exempt from withholding taxes. Earnings over the standard deduction would be taxable. You are not exempt from the fica and medicare taxes. (Social Security) Usually these are more than what is taken out for withholding.
