Proposed tuition tax credit cap for private schools stalls

By Howard Fischer | Capitol Media Services via PinalCentral

A stalemate between Republicans and Democrats means that Arizona corporations will be able to continue to divert an ever-increasing share of their state income tax to help students attend private and parochial schools.

On a party-line vote, the Senate gave preliminary approval Wednesday to changes in laws that give corporations a dollar-for-dollar credit against their state taxes for money they give to “scholarship tuition organizations.’’ These STOs, in turn, provide funds parents can use to pay the tuition and fees of their children at private schools.

But what SB 1467 was missing was the promise by Senate President Steve Yarbrough, R-Chandler, to finally eliminate a provision in the law that, if not capped, could eventually mean corporations would pay nothing into the state treasury.
