The Oregon Education Tax Credit Coalition has reached 100 supporters and counting!
The Oregon Education Tax Credit Coalition (ORED) advocates for The Rose Friedman Educational Opportunity Tax Credits.
ORED builds on the work of the School Choice Working Group which
supported House Bill 3010 in the last Oregon Legislative Session. Although
HB 3010 failed by one vote in the House Education Committee, the struggle
to give low-income students more educational options continues.
Education tax credits are already available in other states. Tens of thousands
of low-income students have already gained access to a high-quality education
due to these programs.
HELP US SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT ORED!
What are the Rose Friedman Educational Opportunity Tax Credits?
This legislation would create two tax credits:
1) The Oregon Family Education Tax Credit: A personal tax credit of
$1,000 (per child) for any educational expenses including tuition, school
supplies, tutoring, etc.
2) The Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit. A tax credit for donations
made to a tuition scholarship organization that gives scholarships to
low-income students, or students with disabilities.
Opportunity Scholarship Limits:
Up to $1,000 per Oregon taxpayer
($2,000 for married couples filing jointly).
Up to $10,000 for Oregon Businesses (The first $2,000 would be 100% deductible with the rest 75% deductible).
We need YOU to convince as many other Oregonians as you can to join the Coalition.
