Jane Scheef – Taxes for Music Teachers

Jane ScheefJane Scheef has a degree in Music Education from Northern State University in Aberdeen, South Dakota with an emphasis in piano. She taught in the public school systems in South Dakota and Iowa until moving to Wisconsin in 1973. From that time until April of 2012, she taught privately. From 1988 to 2008, she worked for H & R Block. She was a Sr. Tax Preparer and Office Leader and had her Enrolled Agent certification with the IRS for 17 years. She continues to do volunteer taxes with AARP.

Ms. Scheef states: “I have loved every minute of my music teaching and tax preparing careers (well nearly every minute) and am so happy to be able to combine the two for my colleagues in both areas.” She join us via Skype to cover basic and specific deductions for music teachers as well as record keeping and the required documentation for purchases, travel, etc.

Ovations! Computer System and WMTA Auditions

We regret to announce that we will not be able to use the new Ovations! system to register for WMTA Auditions this year. While much work  has been done, it still requires a little checking and tweaking before full-scale use.

There will be some time following the tax presentation if teachers wish to stay for informal discussion. Sandra Statz will be available to give a peak at the future of Auditions registration. (The computer program will be wonderful when it is finally ready.) Teachers with questions about Auditions or other events should bring them. Otherwise, just enjoy a few minutes to chat.
