An article in the New York Times Opinion Pages has supporters and critics of homeschooling debating the idea of giving homeschoolers tax credits. While having a few extra dollars in our pockets might seem like a great idea, a tax break that comes with “strings attached” could mean more trouble than the money is worth.
It’s likely that tax credits for homeschoolers would not be offered without strings. Our puppet legislators, and the lobbyists who pull their strings, are not in the business of doing favors for homeschoolers. Money isn’t free. And it’s what comes with the money that would have many homeschoolers questioning whether or not they want to check the credit box on their tax return.
So is there Room for Debate…Do Homeschoolers Deserve a Tax Break? Read the debate and decide for yourself.
