As part of April’s National Financial Literacy Month, the Texas Society of CPAs is highlighting its free, noncommercial resources.
This includes the TSCPA’s consumer website, www.valueyourmoney.org, which provides personal finance information under the categories of 12 different life stages ranging from childhood to retirement.
The site also allows users to upload tip and activity sheets, budgeting worksheets and nine-month financial planning guides for expectant parents. The TSCPA has also posted a “30 Days of Financial Literacy List” for families and a list of smart money management and no-cost to low-cost savings activities in English and Spanish.
Financial Literacy Month was established in 2000 by the Jumpstart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy and in 2003 the U.S. Congress supported the initiative in a resolution asking President George W. Bush to declare April as Financial Literacy for Youth Month.
