At the moment, no. I did recently hear that there's discussion in the house of representatives to allow a tax break for homeschoolers.

Susan,

You really get the use out of your books. Thank you for the information on the HSLDA.

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're COMMITTED to something, you accept NO EXCUSES; only results."

I tired of being sick and tired all the time!! Time to do something about it!!

And This Too Shall Pass.

LIFE is like an echo..........

Even if there were, I'd stay away from them. Anytime the government is involved, there are new regulations created. Always be aware of that. We just have to suck it up, I guess. smile.
I did learn recently, however, that through Home School Legal Defense Association, there are 'Ambassadors" who may live in your area and report your needs, and find a way to meet them. People are getting their houses fixed up, by fellow homeschoolers who have the skills. I thought that was really neat.
Also, if you are in need, you can go through their group Home School Foundation and apply for help. Any kind of help, even curriculum.
They also sell some used curriuculum, I think.
I'm just about to start ordering and have to shop around. This is our last big spending year, since my oldest will be ordering 11th and 12th grade level things. Woohoo! All his books move down the line, 8 times before I'll be through with them! lol

And we all lived happily ever after...


Life.
It's Worth Living.
It's Worth Giving.
Choose Life.

Build up the Culture of Life!
We can change hearts, by bringing up the next generation to embrace Life at an early age.
If only moral people are willing to do that, mass abortion will end.

I wish! The Government doesn't want kids to be homeschooled, so the last thing they wanna do is give us tax breaks :(

As I was in the school supply store purchasing my" needs" as well as "wants"for my schoolroom, it occurred to me that when I was a full-time schoolteacher in the public schools, I could list school items for deductions ,[even when I substituted ,too!]. Does anyone know of any deductions you can list?
