And this is for all my teachers. A, thank you for being a teacher because without them, let’s be honest, none of us would be who we are today. And you wanting to work as a teacher, I think is a way above the call of duty, not very good at teaching as you guys have probably figured out listening to my radio show every Saturday from 2 to 3. That being said, we know in 2022 they moved your whopping $250 up to $300 for classroom supplies. Again, this year you will get that $300. This is for anyone that is a qualified teacher, not a homeschooler, not someone that’s just sitting in as an au pair, but an actual teacher. You can take $300 on your tax return.

You can catch the Dr. Friday call-in show live every Saturday afternoon from 2 to 3 right here on 99.7 WTN.
