Receive a State Tax Credit and
Direct your Illinois State Tax Dollars to Help Families Attend CHA
How The Process Works:
- Set up a “My Tax Illinois” account. The State of Illinois will send you confirmation of your account in 7-10 days.
- Once confirmation is received, you will be able to request a tax credit authorization in the amount that fits your circumstances. This might be $100, $1000, or even $10,000 (this authorization is usually issued almost immediately).
- Send a check for your credit amount to the Children’s Tuition Fund at the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI)
- ACSI will distribute money for scholarships to the school that you selected.
- Claim your credit, which will equal 75% of your contribution, on your Illinois state tax return.
- Request a LETTER ID from the State of Illinois and ACTIVATE your MyTax Illinois account.
- After receiving your Letter ID and activating your account, REQUEST your tax contribution credits on MyTax Illinois.
- After receiving your tax credits, send your CONTRIBUTION to the Children’s Tuition Fund of Illinois (ACSI’s Scholarship Granting Organization).
