Senator Ossoff Advocates for Tax Relief for Georgia Teachers

In Washington, D.C., U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff is leading efforts to reduce taxes for teachers across Georgia.

Senator Ossoff is supporting the Educators Expense Deduction Modernization Act of 2023, a bipartisan bill aimed at increasing the maximum deduction amount for teachers who spend their own money on classroom supplies.

Currently, teachers can deduct up to $250 from their taxes for these expenses. However, the new legislation would raise this limit to $1,000.

A study conducted by USA Today revealed that more than 90% of teachers have used their own money to purchase classroom supplies, with over half of them spending over $1,000 annually.
