Life’sWork of Western PA has become an Educational Improvement Organization supported by the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC). Through this program, a donation to Life’sWork can provide your company with a tax credit of 75% for a one-year commitment and 90% for a two-year commitment. These tax credits are a dollar for dollar reduction in the taxes owed by a PA business. Not only would this program help reduce the taxes owed, but it would also give your company the opportunity to direct where tax dollars are being spent. The contributions made would directly support our Work Discovery Program, helping high-school aged youth with disabilities transition from school to the world of work. By applying for this program, you can help change the life of a student with disabilities while reducing your tax obligation – a win for the student, a win for the community, and a win for your business.
Applications for the EITC Program are approved on a first-come-first-served basis by the date received. July 1, 2022 marks the date in which all initial applicants can begin submitting their applications. It is highly recommended that companies get their applications in on July 1st because only a select number of applications will be chosen. Therefore, the companies that get their applications in early have a higher chance of being accepted into the program.
