School Scholarship Tax Credit

Illinois enacted the Invest In Kids Scholarship Tax Credit Program in 2017. This program offers a 75 percent income tax credit to individuals and businesses that contribute to qualified Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGOs). The SGOs then provide scholarships for students whose families meet the income requirements to attend qualified, non-public schools in Illinois.

"Illinois’ new scholarship tax credit program will open doors for students from all walks of life to access excellent schools and allow parents the opportunity to choose which type of education best fits their family." - State Rep. Joe Sosnowski
