Back-to-school time means a tax break for teachers

Posted by Admin Posted on Aug 28 2018

When elementary and secondary school teachers are setting up their classrooms for the new school year, it’s common for them to pay for some classroom supplies out of pocket. A special tax break allows these educators to take an above-the-line deduction for up to $250 of these expenses. The deduction is especially important now due to the TCJA’s suspension of miscellaneous itemized deductions subject to the 2% of adjusted gross income floor, which before 2018 could be used for educator expenses.
