The Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (PA EITC) program allows businesses in the Commonwealth to earn a tax credit of up to 90% for certain Pennsylvania taxes when they make a donation to a "scholarship organization" or an "educational improvement organization," a special category under the state tax code.**
The Pathway School has been approved as an Educational Improvement Organization (EIO).
Funds received under these programs provide funding for special programs and projects to enhance students' academic experiences at The Pathway School. Businesses that are subject to one or more of the following Pennsylvania taxes are eligible to participate in the EITC program:
- Corporate Net Income Tax
- Capital Stock Franchise Tax
- Bank & Trust Company Shares Tax
- Title Insurance Companies Shares Tax
- Insurance Premiums Tax
- Mutual Thrift Institutions Tax
- Personal Income Tax of S corporation shareholders or partnership partners
The EITC application process is simple, but application deadlines and timely compliance are critical, as there is a yearly statewide cap and tax credits are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
Download the Commonwealth's guidelines and complete the application.
**Before donating to an EITC program, it is important to review all qualification guidelines and the financial benefits of giving with your accountant.
EITC donations support students achievement through:
- Pathway's Drama Program
- Career Education Program
- Science Program
- Media Arts (video production)
