This is a question more for my friend but i was also curious too.
She goes through an actual person that does her taxes for her (its free that way so no need to advertise which one you go through) and her daughter will be starting school this september. She was wondering if she bought name brand school supplies like crayola or if she bought generic brand school supplies if that would make a difference in doing her taxes?...she has to bring in her reciepts in order for her to prove she can claim anything

I do not think school supplies are tax deductible unless she is a teacher. Buying things like this for your children is just something that we do. I suppose the only way it might be tax deductible is if she is donating it to the school, then she might be able to write it off as a donation, although I have never heard of anyone doing that.
