WI Tax Deduction for Tuition Expense:
The Governor has signed tax legislation into law, giving Wisconsin taxpayers the opportunity to deduct private school tuition expenses from their taxable income beginning on or after January 1, 2014. A subtraction from income is allowed for tuition expenses that are paid for any of the GRACE Catholic Schools. Parents/guardians are eligible for a maximum deduction of $4,000/child in grades K-8 and $10,000/child in grades 9-12. Students transitioning from eighth to ninth grade are eligible for both deductions. Per the instructions, any amount spent on tuition and book fees are eligible for the deduction. Book fees include digital books, such as laptops or tablet fee issued by the school. All expenses incurred after January 1, 2014, are eligible for the deduction.
The $crip Tuition Reduction Program offers families the opportunity to offset a portion of their child’s educational fees by simply purchasing gift cards/certificates. It costs nothing to participate, and a percentage of the profits can be applied to outstanding educational fees. This opportunity to lower your tuition through purchasing gift cards is now available for Notre Dame Academy Students as well when you purchase at Notre Dame of De Pere.
