Redirect your Illinois State Taxes to Christian Heritage Academy

There is a new opportunity to receive a tax credit on your state income taxes beginning in 2018 and fund scholarships for CHA families. Please learn more NOW or consult your tax professional ASAP to learn about the benefits of the new Invest in Kids program.

Credits are limited, apply today. 
Each year (through 2023) $51 million in tax credits is available.  Currently (as of January 19, 2018) $17 million remains.  Once the maximum tax credits are reserved each year, the program is closed by the Illinois Department of Revenue.  This scholarship program could help CHA grow enrollment and allow you to receive a tax credit on your Illinois tax liability.

Please follow the steps below and click the links in each step for supporting information:

  1.  You will need a LETTER ID and ACTIVATE your MyTax Illinois account to claim your tax credits. The video below will also walk you through this process.
  2.  Once you receive your Letter ID and Activate your account, you’ll need to REQUEST your tax contribution credits on MyTax Illinois.
  3.  Once you reserve your tax credits, you will fund your CONTRIBUTION to the Children’s Tuition Fund of Illinois (ACSI’s Scholarship Granting Organization).

There is still time!  As of January 9, 2018, there are still $18 million worth of tax credits to be claimed for Region 1. Please contact Tim Dinkelman, 847 446-5252, for information, or email at
