PA EITC Program for Pennsylvania Businesses

Through the EITC program, your company can earn a substantial tax credit simply by directing state taxes to Wyoming Valley Montessori School, an approved scholarship organization recipient through their partnership with Penn-Mont Academy. The EITC program allows businesses to redirect tax dollars to support scholarships for talented students who could not otherwise afford a WVMS education. Businesses both large and small can benefit from this tax credit program.

Pennsylvania businesses that pay any of the following taxes are eligible to participate in the EITC program:

  • Personal Income Tax of S Corp Shareholders or Partnership Partners
  • Corporate Net Income Tax
  • Capital Stock Franchise Tax
  • Bank & Trust Company Shares Tax
  • Insurance Premium Tax
  • Title Insurance Company Shares Tax
  • Mutual Thrift Institutions


Applications will be processed by the PA Department of Community & Economic Development on a first-come/first-served basis by the date submitted until the amount of available tax credits are exhausted (which occurs quickly so please submit your application as soon as possible).
