Parents of kids in the age group of 3 to 6 are eligible to receive a tax credit of up to $1,000 for sending their kids to private, sex-ed-only schools.
The tax credit is only available to people over the age of 18, but can also be applied to students under the age 5.
The Tax Foundation, a conservative think tank, estimated the tax credit would cost taxpayers about $1.5 billion in 2017.
While it’s hard to predict exactly how much the credit would pay for sex ed, it’s likely to have a significant impact on families that send their kids there, said Jennifer Gannon, director of policy studies at the Tax Foundation.
It’s also worth noting that the tax credits were designed to help low-income parents with children, rather than provide a tax break to middle-income taxpayers, Gannon said.
The tax credits are designed to go toward school supplies and supplies that will last for a year or more, Gucker said.
Tax credits have a long history in states like New York and California, and it’s unclear whether they will be extended to the rest of the country.
In the meantime, some states are trying to limit the use of tax credits in their schools.
In Pennsylvania, for instance, the state Supreme Court ruled that schools have no authority to award tax credits for education.
But the Pennsylvania legislature could pass legislation later this year to allow schools to use tax credits to offset the cost of supplies that they may have to purchase.
If the Pennsylvania bill passes, the Tax Policy Center estimated that it could save taxpayers an estimated $1 billion over the next 10 years.
The Center for American Progress is an independent, nonpartisan research and policy center focused on advancing progressive economic policies.
