Advocacy in Catholic Education
Tax Credits for Investments in Education
Countless public school districts have fund-raising entities to solicit charitable donations to help meet rising costs and provide funding for important programs. Likewise, scholarship organizations, which rely on charitable contributions, have long waiting lists of students and families desperate for a scholarship to help them afford tuition at the school that meets their needs. Currently, when individuals or corporations make such a donation, they can only deduct the amount of the donation from their taxable income. This long-established tax incentive for charitable giving is no longer sufficient to meet the demands placed on not-for-profit organizations struggling to help students and schools.
The Education Investment Tax Credit proposal would enhance the current tax incentive and thereby encourage increased corporate and individual donations to the public school sector as well as to scholarship organizations that help low- and middle-income families with their tuition expenses. As a result, the Education Investment Tax Credit would help support the education of all children regardless of where they attend school.
Tax Credits for Education Expenses
All parents of school-aged children incur some additional expenses for their children’s education beyond what they pay in taxes. These expenses include education materials for the classroom and/or the home; school projects; academic programs; educational trips; and fees for tutoring and/or advanced placement programs. Tuition-paying families shoulder some of the greatest educational expense beyond school taxes. In addition, teachers spend an average of $400 of their own money to provide supplies and materials for the children in their classroom.
A personal income tax credit for educational expenses would help all parents and teachers offset a portion of these expenses. Moreover, such a tax credit would save taxpayers millions of dollars by enabling more parents to enroll their children in religious and independent schools.
