Senate Bill 241: Authorizes a Private Education Tax Credit
Sponsors:
Senator Grooms
Summary:

This bill would authorize a tax deduction of up to $2,000 per home school student per year for instruction-related expenditures. The bill also authorizes a tax credit for contributions made to nonprofit scholarship funding organizations that pay tuition, transportation, and textbook expenses to independent schools for qualifying students. This tax credit program, while expanding school choice in general, does not affect homeschools because homeschools are excluded from the definition of an eligible school, and scholarships are only available for students attending an eligible school.
