EITC Business Tax Credit
Did you know that you can contribute up to 90% of your state tax bill to a scholarship organization in order to support the Christian School of Grace Baptist Church? Act 48 of 2003 establishes the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) that allows you to support private schools in the state of Pennsylvania with your tax dollars. This enables you to give to a Christian school rather than to the state.
Tax credits are equal to 75 percent of the contribution up to a maximum of $750,000 per taxable year. This can be increased to 90 percent if the business agrees to provide the same amount for two consecutive tax years.
Eligible businesses include those who are authorized to do business in Pennsylvania and who are subject to one or more of the following taxes.
- Corporate Net Income Tax
- Capital Stock Franchise Tax
- Bank and Trust Company Shares Tax
- Title Insurance Companies Shares Tax
- Insurance Premiums Tax
- Mutual Thrift Institution Tax
- Insurance Company Law of 1921
- Personal Income Tax of S corporation shareholders or Partnership partners
The State of Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program web page provides information on how to apply for EITC credits.

EITC Tax Credit: For Individuals
In addition to businesses, the PA Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) allows qualified individuals to re-direct PA taxes to private schools such as The Christian School of Grace Baptist Church. This program allows up to 90% of your state tax bill to go to our school instead of the state.
To qualify, individuals must have a PA personal income tax liability of $4,000 or more, be employed by a for-profit business entity, and join a Special Purpose Entity.
Contact the school office to learn more about the EITC program. Additional information will be provided for you to discuss with your tax accountant.
