Buzz: Teachers must hand in tax returns to district office

January 30, 2012

I’m hearing that the District administration is asking teachers send in copies of front page of their federal income tax returns to comply with an internal audit. This seems like a huge invasion of privacy. I thought conservative Republicans ran the Escambia County Public School District.

    Not one of my friends have been asked to do this.
    Lori: what does a tax form have to do with republicans? Last time I checked accoutants weren’t responsible for educating our kids.
    Also, the district does not need your tax form to look at who is covered under your insurance. They already have all that info.

    Okay so they wanr ro compare dependents claimed on your income tax form to dependents on your health insurance.

    They had them mark out their S.S. numbers and income. They wanted to see who you claim as dependents in your household for insurance claims.

    If it has to do with health insurance and eligibility, the relevant information on the first page of the 1040 is the list of dependents. Not sure this is an ethical thing to require of teachers, though.

    @ lori Teachers are supposed to teach, not administrators and 90 % or more are democrats so blaming this on republicans is nonsense.
    This rumor is stating to have some substantiation to it.
    Amazing move for the system to attempt. It won’t fly.

    How would the school use the first page of your 1040 to determine whom health insurance should be covering in a household ?
    Each spouse could be covered under one health insurance policy or each could be covered under seperate policies.

    Form 1040 does not ask about health insurance coverage.
