Homeschoolers Save Taxpayers $22 Billion Per Year
Written by Alex Newman
Taxpayers across America, struggling under the burden of crushing local property taxes in addition to state and federal taxes, should thank a homeschooling family today. According to recent estimates, homeschool families are saving taxpayers across America some $22 billion each year, if not more.

In Wisconsin, where FreedomProject Academy has its headquarters, homeschool families save taxpayers well over $200 million per year. In California, it’s almost $2 billion, while in New York and Texas it’s $1.7 billion and $1.2 billion, respectively, according to data published by Intellectual Takeout.
