If you owe state taxes to Pennsylvania as an individual or as a company, wouldn’t you rather send that money to Plumstead Christian School to be used for Tuition Assistance? With a two-year commitment to the EITC program a participant received 90% of his or her gift back as a PA state tax credit. Example: if an individual has a PA state tax liability of $5,000 or more, an EITC gift of $5,000 to Plumstead Christian School only costs the participant $500 out-of-pocket. The remainder of the gift is returned to the participant as a PA state tax credit.
If I have ever been confronted with a truly rewarding and helpful program for Plumstead Christian School, Pennsylvania’s EITC (Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program) is it! As a financial professional (as well as parent, grandfather, and Christian) none of us come across too many “no brainers” in our lifetime, but I would have to say, in my opinion, that this is one of them. To be able to significantly offset (up to 90%) my state income tax owed each year with tax credits based on my giving to PCS is a win-win. The EITC program allows me to significantly support Christian education in my local area with only a minor incremental cost. I would encourage anyone with a passion for Christian education to get educated and avail himself or herself of this very meaningful program. – Scott Shaw, President and Senior Financial Advisor at Veritas Strategies
