Indiana--Calls Needed This Weekend to Support $6,000 Tax Credit for

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

A bill creating a $6,000 state tax credit for homeschool families is
making tremendous progress due, in part, to your calls. After fine
tuning Senate Bill 281 this week with several amendments, we expect
the full House to vote on the bill on Monday.

To pass Monday's crucial test, we need vigorous support from
homeschool families over the weekend.


Please call your state representative this weekend and on Monday
morning with this message:

"Please vote for Senate Bill 281 because it will empower parents to
choose the best education for their children."

You can contact your state representative by calling 800-382-9842 or
317-232-9600. You can also find specific contact information for your
representative with our legislative toolbox at . Calling published home telephone
numbers may be the best way to contact the representatives over the


The maximum amount of the credit when fully phased in is $6,000 per
year per family. The amount of credit an individual family receives
will depend on the number of children being homeschooled, the income
level of the family, and status of the phase-in period. Families with
income more than 350% of the federal poverty level (about $65,000 for
a family of 4) will not be eligible for the credit. Under some
circumstances, the tax credit will be "refundable," that is, the state
will send the family a refund check for more than the amount of taxes
withheld from their paycheck.

Thank you for supporting tax fairness for homeschoolers.
