The state of Wisconsin allows parents to deduct private school tuition. Families are eligible to receive an income tax deduction up to $4,000 for tuition paid for each 5K through eighth grade student, and up to $10,000 per high school student. Families can only deduct the amount of tuition they have actually paid (for instance, for parents filing single tax returns, they are only able to claim the tuition they paid, not tuition paid by the student’s other parent.)
Only the amount paid after January 1, _ _will qualify for the deduction. We advise families to work with their tax advisor to determine the specifics.
How can parents claim the tax deduction?
A PS Form should be filed with your state tax return. Families are to submit the student’s name, social security number, grade, school ID number and tuition paid. Each student’s paid tuition amount that parent are claiming (up to the maximum deduction for each) will be added together for the total deduction. (Eastbrook Academy’s FEIN number is 39-1926815)
