July 29, 2020

The pandemic may cause schools to be operated differently this year, but eligible educators can still take a 2020 deduction for certain expenses. That includes teachers, counselors, principals and aides in kindergarten through grade 12.

They must work at least 900 hours during a school year in a school that provides education under state law. The deduction is for up to $250 of unreimbursed expenses (receipts required). Married taxpayers who file jointly and are both eligible educators may claim up to a $500 deduction.

Qualifying expenses include professional development course fees; books; supplies; computer equipment, software and certain other items.
