EITC Program Helps Local Students Obtain Workforce Skills

EITC Program Helps Local Students Obtain Workforce Skills

Coudersport, PA – February 25, 2013 – Businesses have an opportunity to keep a large portion of their state business income tax in our local community. The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) allows businesses to contribute directly to certain organizations and receive up to 90% in state tax credits. It’s an opportunity to support local high school students obtain specialized education that can directly help them improve their chances of employment upon graduation. These skills learned may even help businesses find the qualified employees they need to succeed!

The Potter County Education Council and the Seneca Highlands Career and Technical Center have teamed up to provide job-ready training skills to high school students through the EITC program. Programs focus on: workplace health and safety, industrial skills, heavy equipment, healthcare careers, computer networking, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).

“We are encouraging businesses to take a look at their Pennsylvania income tax liability, and discuss the EITC program with their tax professionals,” said Mary Jo Shaub, EITC coordinator with the Potter County Education Council. “This has been a very successful program and has a direct impact on workforce development programs that can be offered to our high school students. Through participation in this program, businesses can directly support students in McKean and Potter Counties.”

More information is available at search “EITC.” Or call the Potter County Education Council at 814-274-4877.
