What is EITC?
Enacted by the Pennsylvania Legislature in 2001, Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) offers businesses an opportunity to invest a portion of their tax dollars into innovative education programs that directly benefit students through approved educational improvement organizations such as the Berks History Center. The state Department of Community and Economic Development’s Tax Credit Division oversee the EITC Program.
The EITC provides companies with a 75% tax credit for donations to a non-profit scholarship or educational improvement organization (EIO). The tax credit increases to 90% if the company commits to making the same donations for two consecutive years.
