LIBERTY TAX SERVICE PROVIDES TAX CUT ON FEES
FOR TEACHERS AND SCHOOL EMPLOYEES
Pasco and Richland, Washington Teachers can leave their lesson plans behind, but are invited to bring their tax receipts and information into Liberty Tax Service offices during "Educator Appreciation Days." The company is saluting area teachers, all school employees and bus drivers by offering them free tax preparation from March 1st through March 7th at the Road 68 and Queensgate Liberty Tax offices.
"Employees involved in educating our children deserve a tax break," said Janice Strain, Marketing Manager of Liberty Tax Service. "We have Appreciation Days to show our respect for the teaching profession and those employed by the schools. They have one of the most important jobs, yet the monetary rewards may be greater for those in private business with comparable levels of education."
Liberty Tax urges teachers and eligible educators who spend their own money on classroom supplies that they should be eligible for a tax break again when filing a 2009 return. An eligible educator is a kindergarten through grade 12 teacher, instructor, counselor, principal or aide who works at least 900 hours in either a public or private school. The adjustment for these expenses, of no more than $250, can be claimed whether or not the taxpayer can itemize.
