A new bill would provide a tax credit for educators who pay out-of-pocket for classroom supplies.
Senate Bill 315 and House Bill 4582 provide up to $1,000 for a single return and up to $2,000 for a joint return to teachers buying school supplies.
The bills were introduced as part of Teacher Appreciation Week by Senator Jeff Irwin and Representative Angela Witwer.
“Every day, teachers in Michigan are taking money out of their pockets to buy supplies for their classrooms because Lansing is failing to fund our public schools,” Sen. Irwin said.
