Senate Bill 39: Tax Credits for Nonpublic Education
Sponsors:
Lundberg
Summary:

This bill creates tax credits for nonpublic education—private school and home-based education. (The bill specifically defines home-based to include a child taught at home under supervision of a private school.) A qualified child is a dependent child who was enrolled full- or part-time in public school in the year prior to being taught at home, but it doesn’t include a child enrolled in a private school or taught at home prior to the effective date of the section. There is a $1,000 credit for home-based education; private school credit is based on tuition or 50% of the previous year’s state average per pupil revenues, whichever is less.
