Legislative Alert: SB 223 – Future of Private Schools in Danger
Senate Bill 223 is a dangerous, unconstitutional bill that seeks to register private schools with the state. While it appears to be a voluntary choice for private schools to register, they would face significant consequences if they decide not to participate. Schools that do register would need to meet and maintain certain requirements. This ultimately could blur any lines between public and private schools.
See our latest blog post HERE for more information.
One can submit written public testimony now through 3:15 PM on Thursday, March 18th. Details for how to do so are included in the blog post.
A Dollar-for Dollar Credit
The Political Tax Credit is a no-cost way to support the political cause of your choice, allowing you to direct a portion of your tax dollars in a way that YOU choose. It is a credit, not a deduction. Most people can give up to $100* for joint filers or $50* for individuals to an Oregon political organization and that amount will be credited back to you on tax day. Contributions must be dated no later than December 31st, 2021, to receive the credit on your 2021 Oregon tax return. To make a Political Tax Credit contribution, click HERE.
