The Ohio House will be in session Thursday afternoon, and one of the bills they will be voting on is to provide a tax deduction to teachers who spend their own money on school supplies for kids.

According to federal law, teachers are allowed to deduct up to $250 for money spent on school supplies as part of the taxable income on their federal taxes. Federal law allows up to $500 for married teachers who file jointly.

With this bill, teachers in Ohio may be able to deduct an additional amount on the state level.
