For income tax years commencing on or after January 1, 2024, but
before January 1, 2026, the bill allows a refundable state income tax
credit, which is intended to offset the various expenses that licensed
teachers often incur throughout an academic year for classroom supplies,
professional development costs, supplemental educational materials, field
trips, and other items that improve the quality of the educational services
that they provide, to a licensed teacher who is employed as a teacher in
a public school on a full-time basis for at least one-half of an academic
year (eligible teacher) during the income tax year for which the credit is
claimed. The amount of the credit is $1,000 for an eligible teacher who
is employed for the equivalent of an entire academic year and $500 for a
teacher who is employed for one-half of an academic year. Two eligible
teachers who file a joint income tax return may each claim the credit.
