Did you know about the state programs to help with your educational expenses? These benefits can reduce parents’ taxes and increase your refund, but only if you keep your receipts.  Generally, most expenses paid for educational instruction or materials qualify, including paper, pens and notebooks; textbooks; rental or purchases of educational equipment such as musical instruments; computer hardware and educational software; after-school tutoring and educational summer camps taught by a qualified instructor. Most Minnesota parents qualify for the K-12 subtraction, which reduces their taxable income. Parents under certain income limits may also qualify for the K-12 credit, which can refund up to 75% of their costs – even for parents who don’t owe any taxes.

Any tablets not picked up during distribution times will be available after September 2nd, between 3:15 and 4:30 pm at Technology Services in the portable.  9th grade students will have to have a parent present to pick up the tablet.
