As a special education teacher, with this new proposed tax plan I would not be able to buy school supplies for my classroom and deduct those purchases from my taxes. Yet big businesses that purchase supplies for their companies will be able to deduct those purchases. We all know funding and money is tight in our school districts and this is unacceptable. If I did not purchase extra supplies, my classroom would be out of things like pencils, folders, glue, markers, lined paper, etc., within three months. And I think if teachers are expected to be able to afford to do that (which we really can't, we just love our students), then big businesses should not be able to deduct it from their taxes either. Or MAYBE we can both deduct those purchases.
