Your Life

Major life milestones often have a major tax impact. Changes in your marital status, having a baby or adopting a child can have significant impact on your taxes. This is the place to ask questions about dependents, real estate, and other various scenarios that play a significant role in what taxes you pay.

Is there no longer a tax credit for teachers?

In years before we were able to claim no more than 250.00 as a tax credit for teachers. I didn't see where we would get that in this years form? Hope I overlooked it.

Good afternoon and welcome to the Community.

 

Yes, you must have overlooked it!  It is still available and in the same place as before!

I was also looking for it. I have gone through the process on the website numerous times and can't find it.

The tax credit for teachers is still available for 2017. It's line 23 on Form 1040, Educator expenses.  I'd search H&R block with those key words.
