Important Tax Preparation Information for Members Who Itemize

The Revenue Reconciliation Act of 1993 eliminated the individual federal income tax deduction for lobbying expenses paid or incurred as part of membership dues. This affects only those members who itemize deductions and meet the two-percent minimum requirement for additional miscellaneous deductions. Those members will not be able to deduct that portion of the NEA–NH 2019-20 union dues attributable to lobbying. The non-deductible portion of the dues for 2019-2020 is 7.36% or $34.38 for a full-time professional membership.

Where Are Educators in the Line for Vaccines?

With several COVID-19 vaccines being fast-tracked for approval, vaccines may be available sometime this month. “Every single student, educator, and parent in America has spent the past 10 months in a state of anxiety over the COVID-19 pandemic and what it’s done to our school communities,” said Becky Pringle, NEA President. “There is no replacement for the in-person connection between our students and their educators. With promises of a vaccine on the horizon, we have a new opportunity to return to an in-person education where every student can thrive –

Legislative Preview: What We Face in 2021

This week, the state legislature that convened on December 2 will look very different from the last 2 years – which means the legislative landscape changes dramatically. Republicans now hold a 14-10 majority in the state senate, a 213-187 majority in the state house and will hold a 4-1 majority when the new Executive Council is installed in January along with Governor Sununu. With the change in party control, we expect to see a very different policy agenda pushed by the new majority for the upcoming year, but some of the same challenges we all knew would be before us will remain the same. What does not change: COVID-19 Relief Funding and LeaveRegardless of party control, the pandemic challenges continue. While there appears to be a light at the end

President’s Letter: Through adversity, our strength shines

If you’re like me, you’re eager to see 2020 fade into the past and move on to 2021. Enough already. But for all the pain, disruption, and chaos it brought, 2020 also provided us greater insight into some of our un-celebrated strengths. Through countless examples of sacrifice and service above and beyond the incredible job you have done in the past, this year proved once again just how dedicated and caring our members truly are. Throughout the pandemic, as difficult as it was, we kept the focus on students. You have made it clear once again that our students are very important to us. But if this year proved anything, it’s that we can’t take care of them if we can’t take care of ourselves. We also rediscovered the strength

What NH Students and Families Need Now is PPE, Test Kits, Laptops and Internet Access – Not More Charter Schools

New Hampshire House and Senate leaders plan to move ahead this week on the $46 million federal grant to help double the state’s charter schools – their first major legislative action since taking power in the Legislature last month. Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut said his department will be submitting another request to accept the funding at Friday’s Fiscal Committee meeting. “The pandemic has made it clear that many of our public schools and districts need help. Now is not the time to double the number of charter schools in New Hampshire,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-NH President. “NH Students and families need our elected leaders to pay attention to the schools we already have, and help them with the health crisis we are in right now.“ New Hampshire’s charter school laws provide
