On the 13th anniversary of the Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC), State Senator Anthony Williams (D-Philadelphia) feels supporters still need to fight for the program.
“Do not assume that EITC will survive this budget or the next budget. It requires every year for us to be back here,” said Williams during a rally for the EITC on the capitol steps Wednesday.
The EITC gives a 75% tax credit to companies that donate to a scholarship fund. The tax credit increases to 90% if the company makes the donation for two consecutive years.
