What is the EITC Program?

The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program provides tax credits to eligible businesses contributing to a participating Educational Improvement Organization (EIO). This program was created to provide an incentive for charitable giving by Pennsylvania businesses.

Upon approval, the taxpayer can receive a credit for between 75% – 90% of their Pennsylvania state tax liability by making a contribution to Snider.


Tax credits may be applied against the tax liability of a business for the tax year in which the contribution was made.


Any Pennsylvania business (other than a Sole Proprietorship) that pay any of the following taxes are eligible to participate in the EITC program:

  • Personal Income Tax of S Corp Shareholders or Partnership Partners
  • Corporate Net Income Tax
  • Capital Stock Franchise Tax
  • Bank & Trust Company Shares Tax
  • Insurance Premium Tax
  • Title Insurance Company Shares Tax
  • Mutual Thrift Institutions Tax
  • Malt Beverage Tax
