One Tax Deduction You Never Considered for 2015: Teacher Expenses

Yes, this one’s for you, teachers and educators. All the hard work you do in managing the craziness that is a classroom with ADHD-stricken kids, problematic bullies and the occasional honor student pays off tremendously as long as you do remember that the IRS supports you 100%. We all do. Education is key.

It Would Then Make Sense That Tax Return Education Is a Must

So we’re giving you the keys to financial success in the form of a tax deduction you might never have heard about. Tax returns can be a headache for anyone, not just teachers — this, however, can make the payoff that much sweeter than any Granny Smith or Honey Crisp out there. As you, the teacher, consider your convenient 2-hour tax return without hassle, consider this: you can actually write off your expenses for your classroom. That’s right — up to $250 in sweet tax deductions. That includes:
  • Pencils
  • Notebooks
  • Pens
  • Paper
  • Books
  • Crafts
  • Paint
  • Crayons
  • Calculators
The best part is you don’t have to itemize anything. Just know that if you have a receipt, you can verify it, and perhaps scan it for your own records, send it in, and have the IRS approve it (which would be a breeze), then guess what: you’ve effectively deducted up to that amount on your tax return. That’s serious tax preparation, so get started with your 2-hour tax return right now.

You, the Teacher, Don’t Have to Juggle Taxes, But….

Just don’t forget about getting that apple from the student on the first day of school. All the tax returns in the world can’t make up for that!
