Default NC Teacher Supplemental County pay?

I am a science teacher in Michigan looking to move to NC this summer.

I read that the supplemental county pay is taxable at 50%. I thought that this was the ABC bonuses. Is the supplement really taxed that high?

I think what they meant was withholding on the supplement is at 50%. I do not know the exact withholding, but I get two supplemental payments a year, and "they aint much." I no longer have the energy to longer worry about that, but that could be the reason. I am certain there is not a special tax rate for supplemental pay.

A bigger concern is that the state renigged this year on the bonus for making annual growth. Too many schools did well, so the state cut the bonus. Our local district's approach was, "too bad, that is a state issue, not ours." The word on the street is that this year, it will be near impossible to make growth, so there will not be a funding issue.

If you are moving to NC to teach...ONLY DO SO IF YOU WANT TO LIVE HERE AND YOU WANT TO TEACH. You will not make as much as you think you should. Period. If it is a matter of stress, it will not go away.

I have military retirement in addition to teacher's pay. I do not see how folks without extra income source can even consider teaching here.

Most counties give supplements, in addition to any ABC bonuses. The supplements are not tied to that...and the percentage given varies county-to-county.

Bonuses are paid at 50% increments.

You get 1/2 of your bonus in December, the other half around March or April.

I think that's what they meant.

Supplement pay and policies vary greatly by county. In Cumberland, teachers get a once yearly supplement with their last check. Most counties pay it out twice a year. It all depends on the county.

Do you have teaching jobs already? Charlotte is cutting positions, the community colleges and the universities are considering measures such as cutting sections, increasing class size, and hiring freezes. We're already counting paper and have reverted monies back to the state. If you have a job - stay where you are! Oh, we don't have teacher's unions - don't know about K-12.

That's not a union...they're just lobbyists for the teachers.
