Congressman Gus Bilirakis

Representing the 12th District of Florida

Bilirakis Stands Up for Teachers

December 13, 2017
Press Release

Today, Congressman Bilirakis joined a group of concerned lawmakers in co-authoring a letter to the members of the Tax Reform Conference Committee asking that they adopt the Senate position on the teacher supply deduction. American teachers go above and beyond the call of duty every day.  Purchasing supplies for their classroom is just one example of their generosity.  While it is important to simplify the tax system as a whole, there are certain deductions, such as this one, which have benefits that far outweigh their financial costs.

Our hard working teachers spend so much money out of their own pockets to provide daily necessities for their students. It is important that we not only preserve, but expand this important deduction which helps to offset these costs, said Congressman Bilirakis.
