THE EDUCATIONAL IMPROVEMENT TAX CREDIT (EITC)
What is the EITC program?
The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) is a great option to give to St. Peter’s School and get a tax credit for your business at the same time. Instead of giving corporate tax dollars to Pennsylvania, companies can make a majority of their tax payment in the form of a contribution to qualified scholarship organizations, such as St. Peter’s School. The application process is easy, and the benefits to the school and to companies are substantial:
A company can receive PA State tax credits equal to 75% of its contribution up to a maximum of $400,000 per taxable year. This can be increased to 90% of the contribution, if a company agrees to provide the same amount for two consecutive tax years. The NewPA website for EITC has the most up-to-date information regarding rules, eligibility, and forms.
