Act Now for the Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program
INVEST IN KIDS
TAX CREDIT SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Application Process is Now Open!
The Illinois "Invest in Kids Act" created a Tax Credit Scholarship program which allows individuals and corporations to donate to Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGOs) and receive a credit for 75% of the value of their donation on their Illinois state taxes in return. This program seeks to connect low income families with high quality schools. CLICK HERE for more details from the Archdiocese of Chicago.
Empower Illinois' application process will now open on
Wednesday, January 31 at 12 p.m.,
one week later than previously announced. CLICK HERE for full details.
Many of you have heard about Senate Bill 1947 regarding State of Illinois income tax credits that will assist Catholic and private schools. This is the first time the State of Illinois is providing tax credits to non-public elementary and secondary education. This program might be helpful as you plan for 2017 state taxes. Donors are encouraged to apply for a tax credit as early in 2018 as possible. In order to apply for a tax credit you must first go to the www.mytax.illinois.gov
website and request a "LetterID" number that you must input to the IL Dept. of Revenue website when tax credit applications open on January 2nd. The "LetterID" will be sent via the postal service and could take up to 10 days to arrive. CLICK HERE
for instructions on how to apply for the LetterID. CLICK HERE
for instructions on the tax credit application.
Many details regarding the new school tax credit program, which was passed by the state legislature this Fall, remain undetermined. CLICK HERE
for more information about the program and what Saint Ignatius is doing at the present time.
Until the State Department of Finance comes out with further guidelines, this is all the school has to work with. The Archdiocese is working on affiliating with an existing Scholarship Granting Organization that would serve as an umbrella for all Catholic schools. If you have questions please contact John Chandler, at 312-432-8350.
Note: There may be changes
to this list as the application process is finalized by the SGOs. We will
provide updates as they are available.
Empower IL is using a form that asks for Saint Ignatius College Prep's ISBE RCDT Code. Our code is: 15016092Y
Application process: As
a reminder, families will need to apply for tax credit scholarships through a
scholarship granting organization (SGO), which will manage this process,
instead of the Archdiocese or your school directly. There are several SGOs in
Illinois. The Archdiocese of Chicago is working with two SGOs: Empower
Illinois and Big Shoulders Fund.
The application process with Empower Illinois will be completed online
at www.empowerillinois.org. The
application process will open January 24, 2018.
The application process with Big Shoulders Fund will be completed online atwww.bigshouldersfundsgo.org. The
