In July/August issue of the KBA Journal, the "2014 Legislative Wrap-Up” incorrectly listed a proposed change to the school finance bill as having been passed into law. This proposal would have allowed home-schooled or private school enrollees to receive a property tax credit ranging from $1,000 - $2,500, depending on the number of children who met the requirements. This proposal was removed from the final version of the bill prior to its passage.
In addition, the article also discussed the Corporate Education Tax Credit Scholarship program. To clarify, under HB 2506, corporations will be eligible for tax credits if they donate to a newly established scholarship fund that will pay for low-income students to attend private schools. The scholarship granting organizations created in the bill to collect and disperse scholarship money will have oversight from the Kansas Department of Revenue.
The KBA apologizes for this error. If you have any question please feel free to contact Joseph Molina, Director of Legislative Services, firstname.lastname@example.org.
