Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi, Leesa. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Are you a student? Have you applied for any grants? Education or research grants can be nontaxable but they just don't call you out of the blue. You have to apply for them.
Here's a warning from US department Health and human services about potential Grant scams: http://www.hhs.gov/grants/grants/avoid-grant-scams/index.html
If you didn't apply for it and somebody just call you to offer a you one, asking for bank or credit card info for whatever reason, it's most likely a scam.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
