Pennsylvania Tax Credit Program (EITC)
The Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC), provides your company with the opportunity to receive a substantial tax credit by making a contribution to Upper Bucks Christian School. A company can receive Pennsylvania state tax credits equal to 75% of its contribution up to a maximum of $750,000 per taxable year. This can be increased to 90% of the contribution, if a company agrees to provide the same amount for two consecutive tax years.
Your support of Upper Bucks Christian School through the EITC program supports our mission to open doors of opportunity for bright and promising students from all backgrounds.
