It is possible to make your subscription tax deductible as an educator expense deduction.

The educator expense deduction allows teachers to deduct up to $250 for purchases of materials used in the classroom.

In order to qualify, you must:

  • Be a K-12 school teacher, instructor, counselor, principal or aide and
  • Have worked at least 900 hours in the school year in a school that provides elementary or secondary education as determined under state law

You may not deduct expenses if you have already received reimbursement for them. If you are a teacher who is married to another teacher, you can claim up to $250 each. Find out more information here.
