JANUARY 27, 2017
Are you an educator? Do you buy construction paper, flash cards, puzzles and other items that support educational growth? There is a new tax credit you may qualify for when you purchase supplies for your classroom.
The 2016 federal budget introduced a teacher and early childhood educator school supply tax credit for 2016 and subsequent taxation years.
This new tax credit will allow an employee who is an eligible teacher or early childhood educator to claim a 15% refundable tax credit on an amount of up to $1,000 for purchases of eligible teaching supplies for which they were not reimbursed.

Are you a US citizen? Are you a resident of Canada?
The United States is one of the only countries in the world that require their citizens to report their worldwide income even if they are a resident of another country. Even if you have not lived in the US since childhood, if you have your US citizenship, you are required to file US tax returns with the IRS.
Support you deserve. Expertise you can trust.
