House Bill 88: Employer Tax Credit

Author:
Rep. Michael R. Brown

Summary:
This bill authorizes a tax credit for employers who hire qualified high school students for summer jobs. Homeschoolers may be included as “qualified” students, but only if they register as homeschoolers, have at least a 2.0 GPA, and qualify for a free or reduced price school lunch under the NSLA. Additionally, this bill would require DESE to establish a procedure for determining the eligibility of students, as well as tracking students for which employers receive tax credits.

By requiring some homeschoolers to register, as well as implementing policies to track and evaluate students, this bill creates unacceptable avenues of intrusion into the lives of homeschoolers.
