Tennessee’s education commissioner says the state’s new school vouchers for private education will be considered federally taxable income for parents.
The pro-voucher Tennessee Federation for Children disputes the tax interpretation.

The law says the vouchers “do not constitute income of a parent of a participating student” under Tennessee law. That doesn’t affect federal taxes.

This may be a surprise for parents come tax time.
