Private school tax credit legislation could be considered in 2013

Private school tax credit legislation could be considered in 2013

December 1, 2012

An Associated Press story in the Idaho Statesman reports that legislation to provide tax credits for private school scholarships could be introduced in the Idaho Legislature, which convenes in January.

The idea came up during the 2012 session of the Legislature, but largely went unnoticed and the bill died.

The legislation would allow those who donate to private school scholarships to receive a tax credit, the idea being that students with less financial means than others could therefore have access to a private school. Opponents of the idea believe it could result in less money for public schools and might be in conflict with state law banning public support for church-affiliated schools.

Among those supporting consideration of the tax break, according to the story,  is the Idaho Freedom Foundation. IdahoReporter.com is published by the Idaho Freedom Foundation.
