PENNSYLVANIA’S EDUCATIONAL IMPROVEMENT TAX CREDIT PROGRAM
What is the Educational Improvement
Tax Credit (EITC) program? Offered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED), this program allows businesses to receive significant tax credits when they contribute to qualified educational improvement organizations such as Hedgerow Theatre from the EITC program allows the theatre to bring increased educational opportunities to hundreds of children every year, by continuing our Educational Outreach Programs, such as our work with the children in the City of Chester.
This program only funds “innovative educational programs” that are pre-approved by the DCED. It does not fund general operating expenses.
The EITC program amends the Pennsylvania Public School Code to authorize tax credits for businesses that make contributions to educational improvement organizations (EIO).
Pass-through entities, such as S-Corporations, Partnerships, LLs, etc., can now apply the same day as C-Corporations. Applications must be submitted electronically using DCED’s Single Application for Assistance. Paper business applications will no longer be accepted. See the business application guide in the box above
Businesses that pay the following Pennsylvania taxes are eligible:
- Corporate Net Income Tax
- Capital Stock Franchise Tax
- Bank and Trust Company Shares Tax
- Title Insurance Companies Shares Tax
- Insurance Premiums Tax
- Mutual Thrift Institutions Tax
When does the tax credit program begin, and how much is available? The program year is July 1 through June 30. The filing date is July 1 for first year applications and May 15 for year two (renewal) applications. Applications for tax credits are processed until the credits are exhausted; therefore it is important for your business to submit your application on July 1.
Let’s get started! Determine the amount of state corporate taxes that your company pays.
Guidelines are available at the following link:
Pennsylvania businesses can begin applying for EITC credits through DCED’s electronic single application system. The business application guide explains the process of applying. Tax credit applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis by day submitted. All applications received on a specific day will be processed on a random basis before moving on to the next day’s applications. Applications will be approved until the amount of available tax credits is exhausted.
