Educator School supply tax credit
The Eligible Educator School Supply Tax Credit is a new refundable tax credit for 2016. You can claim a 15% credit on up to $1,000 of school supplies purchased each year if you are an eligible educator. An eligible educator is considered a teacher or early childhood educator working at a regulated child care facility, elementary school or secondary school. Supplies that are eligible must be used in the facility for teaching purposes and must not be subject to reimbursement, allowance or a deduction.
