Students Put Knowledge to the Test for Fall Tax Bowl

Brendan Webb, Elizabeth Hernandez and Megan Hall

Students trade in their textbooks and lecture notes for some good old-fashioned competition once every semester in Professor Paige Bressler’s ACCT 341 federal taxation accounting course during the Tax Bowl contest.

Instead of learning about itemized deductions and gross income inclusions, students put their knowledge to the test by forming teams of three and competing against one another in five rounds until one group emerges as the winner.

In each match, two teams face off against each other. The team that correctly answers the tax-related question first is the winner of the match. Once a team loses a round, they are eliminated.

This year, Brendan Webb, Elizabeth Hernandez and Megan Hall walked away with coveted Tax Bowl trophies besting nine other teams.

Congratulations to this semester’s winners!
