Educator Expenses - Deduction

If you are an elementary or secondary school teacher, instructor, counselor, principal, or aide and you have worked at least 900 hours during a school year, you may deduct the cost of books, supplies, computer equipment (including software and services), and other materials used in the classroom. You may deduct up to $250 of these expenses directly against your income, without itemizing deduction. Each qualified taxpayer may deduct up to $250 in expenses on a joint return. Remaining expenses can be deducted as a miscellaneous itemized deduction on Scheddule A, subject to the 2% of adjusted gross income limit.
