Ohio AG opens certification process for Ohio’s scholarship tax-credit program
The program aims to support students of low-income families.
TOLEDO, Ohio — Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost has launched the online application process for organizations that grant scholarships to primary and secondary students and want to be a part of Ohio’s new tax-credit program.
Under the program, established this year by the General Assembly, Ohioans can receive a 100% tax credit for up to $750 in cash donations to certified organizations that grant scholarships to students, including certain private schools and nonprofit organizations.
The program aims to prioritize scholarships for low-income students and support parents who seek higher-quality education opportunities for their children.
To qualify for the program, an organization must:
- Be a religious or nonreligious 501(c)(3) exempt from federal taxation.
- Primarily award academic scholarships for primary and secondary students.
- Prioritize scholarships for low-income students.
The attorney general’s office is responsible for the certification of these organizations. For the application portal, click here.
