San Diego Mesa College’s Financial Literacy Series is back by popular demand to present students with more exciting speaker events for the fall 2018 semester.
March 5, 2018
On Thursday, March 1, 2018 the first of the Spring 2018 Financial Literacy Speaker Series events – The Tax Man Cometh – took place from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in LRC 435. Guest speaker, Paul Lim, addressed nearly 50 students, staff and faculty on the basics of income tax, issues to consider, how to calculate deductions, and various strategies the common working person can use to avoid paying too much in taxes each year. Attendees were busy taking notes and filing out the provided tax forms as Lim guided them through the process of filling in the right numbers on these often confusing forms.
Lim graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Economics from Johns Hopkins University and serves on the SDFLC (San Diego Financial Literacy Center) Board of Directors. He is a returning speaker from previous semesters, and has also presented at Mesa College on various topics like investment strategies.
Other Financial Literacy Speaker Series events this semester will cover topics like spending smart, important financial tools regarding your credit, investment fundamentals, and a special panel event to ask questions concerning any financial topic.
