EITC: Make Music with Your Tax Dollars

As a Commonwealth-approved Educational Improvement Organization (EIO) and an Opportunity Scholarship Program (OSTC), the PYO Music Institute is eligible for educational improvement tax credits from businesses which ordinarily pay taxes to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Please consider enrolling in the EITC program in support of our youth orchestra. Businesses may apply online and my office can facilitate the processing thereof, or be a resource to answer any questions. Details of the program and qualifying taxes eligible for credit are found on this link. Enroll for two years as a business supporting our EIO or OSTC and you will receive 90% of the tax credits for the amount committed! This program is unique: you choose how to redirect your tax dollars! What better way than to do so in support of unrivaled music education?
