In May 2001, Pennsylvania created the EITC (Education Improvement Tax Credit) for businesses, expanding it in 2012 to include Subchapter S corporations, partnerships and LLC's. The EITC enables companies to support local non-profit charities, at a minimal cost, instead of sending their tax dollars to Harrisburg. It’s that simple. Your tax dollars stay here to help Notre Dame families finance a Catholic education for their children.
The EITC gives registered businesses in our community a 75% tax credit. If a business commits to the program for 2 years, they receive a 90% tax credit.
Businesses authorized to do business in Pennsylvania who are subject to one or more of the following taxes are eligible to participate in the EITC Program:
Additionally, most subchapter s-corporations are now able to participate passing through the tax credit on their personal income tax.
