This bill would do two things: (1) Provide a tax credit to families in the amount of $1,250 per semester for each child enrolled in a nonpublic school (including a homeschool) and for tuition paid to a public school and (2) authorize counties to pay up to $500 per child per year for nonpublic education expenses. The bill states that the tax credit is only available if the child was previously enrolled in a public school for the two semesters immediately preceding the taxable year. This provision would disqualify the vast majority of homeschooling families. Regarding the county aid to nonpublic school students, HSLDA opposes the concept of receiving government money for education.
This bill should be opposed in its current form.
