Minnesota--Action Needed to Expand the Homeschool Tax Credit


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Senate File 816 expands the income levels eligible to receive the tax
credit and eliminates the cap on money that families with multiple
children can receive. It is being considered by the Education
Committee. There are five key Senators on this committee who need to
hear from constituents who support this bill.


ACTION REQUESTED

Please find your State Senator by using HSLDA's legislative toolbox
http://www.hslda.org/toolbox . If your Senator is Stumpf, Skoe,
Saxhaug, Tomassoni, or Kelley, please call their office and leave the
following message: "Expanding the tax credit would assist us in
providing a good education for our children. Please vote 'Yes' on SF
816."


BACKGROUND

Minnesota is one of the few states to provide lower-income families
with an education tax credit to help offset their educational expense
for teaching their children at home. Because the tax credit is not a
direct government handout the money does not come with government
"strings" attached.

SF 816 would expand the scope of this tax credit, enabling many
homeschool families to keep more of their own money.

Sincerely,


Scott W. Somerville
HSLDA Staff Attorney
