SCHOOL READINESS TAX CREDITS

In 2007, the Louisiana Legislature passed a unique package of tax credits known as the School Readiness Tax Credits (SRTC).  For Louisiana businesses, there is a refundable state tax credit for donations made to Louisiana Child Care Resource & Referral (CCR&R) agencies, such as Children's Coalition for Northeast Louisiana.  

For every dollar up to $5,000 contributed to Children's Coalition, your business will receive a dollar-for-dollar refundable credit on your Louisiana State taxes. 

Join these 2015 businesses who have supported our most vulnerable population--children ages 0-5.
