Questions & Answers

Do I qualify for the Educator Expense Deduction?

Full-time (900 hours during a school year) kindergarten through 12th grade teachers, counselors, principals, or aides can deduct up to $250 for out of pocket expenses that they pay for professional development courses related to curriculum or students they teach, supplies, books, equipment, and materials used in their classroom.

Qualified expenses don't include expenses for home schooling or nonathletic supplies for courses in health or physical education. Don't include expenses that were reimbursed.
