Are you a teacher, instructor, counselor, aide, or a principal?

If you said, “Yes!” then chances are, you are purchasing supplies for your classroom or school out of your own pocket. Without people like you, who go above-and -beyond to nurture the minds and imaginations of today’s young people, the world would just not be the same. At Case | Sabatini, we want to make sure your bottom-line is protected, you need to be reimbursed for spending your cash on items that benefit your students and our children! The IRS allows educators to deduct up to $250.00 of what was spent on classroom materials each year. There’s no need to file additional paperwork, you can claim this expense on your 1040. Spend more than $250.00? You may be eligible to claim a deduction for “unreimbursed employee expenses.” This can be a bit tricky, even for the savviest of educators; that’s where we come in! Give us a call today and we will teach you how to decrease your tax burden.
