An Overview Of 'The Tax Man Cometh' For Home Schooling & Income Taxes

May 14, 2008
You are a home school and you also have to file for income tax, this is because government doesn't put you under lawful schools category. Those teachers who teach in either private education centers or accredited public schools are liable to receive a $200.00 as tax credit expenses they make from their pockets and are unaccounted for by the school.

Similar tax credits are not given to families of home school. This is not fair as parents of home schools are required to make high expenditures on getting the right syllabus and supplies as well and for all of it their not entitled to tax benefits.

Are there no benefits at all? Well yes, no such tax relief for the schools. The government is aware and this phenomenon is bad and good too. Good because from the time you take tax credits they shall start regulating all processes. Since there are no tax credits therefore there are no bindings either. But home schooling can be a major expense and if you more than a couple of kids then it can really escalate.

The list of expenses to be incurred is extensive, from purchase of syllabus, books, field trips, sometimes tutors, regular supplies& many unforeseen expenses. The truth that most of these home schools are have more children to educate coupled with single income family makes their case for tax credits all the more understandable. Wouldn't it be a major relief if these families could get their hands on some income tax benefits, it would be more than just help for them.

What they have to do is make choices between essential and needs so that they can make their ends meet. An experienced tax consultant would be able to give you proper guidance on such matters. A few steps could put you on the path to qualify for benefits of tax credits that too legally. First and foremost register your home school doing business.

You might be thinking what has home schools got to do with business making! Well, if you earn a fee from giving classes, it's a business, right. It not necessary that you be an A++ grade teacher.
