Education Improvement Tax Credit


The Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library has been approved as an Educational Improvement Organization under the PA Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC). You may want to speak to your accountant to see if your business qualifies.

What is EITC?

Enacted in 2001, the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) provides a tax credit to businesses that pay Pennsylvania’s corporate income tax for contributions to educational improvement organizations.

Who can make a gift?

Eligible corporations that pay any of the following corporate taxes to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania:

  • Corporate Net Income Tax
  • Capital Stock Franchise Tax
  • Bank and Trust Company Shares Tax
  • Title Insurance Companies Shares Tax
  • Insurance Premiums Tax
  • Mutual Thrift Institution Tax

How much of my tax liability may I donate to the Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library through EITC?

Pennsylvania’s tax credit is for 75% of a corporation’s contribution of up to $300,000 per taxable year, or 90% of its contribution, if it contributes to The Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library for two consecutive years. Total tax credits authorized for the scholarship program are limited annually, and tax credits are awarded to participating businesses.

Where do I get an application?

The application form is available through the Department of Community and Economic Development. It is available online or can be requested by calling (717) 787-7120.
