Teacher Tax Deduction

House Bill 517 (H0517), which has now been signed into law, allows Idaho's elementary and secondary school teachers to declare personal expenditures on classroom materials as a deduction on their state income tax.

The passage of H0517 means that teachers will be allowed to deduct expenses according to Section 62(a)(2)(d) of the Internal Revenue Code. Read the code here.

The bill should help reduce teachers' personal expenses.
