Tax Credit Encourages Business Contributions in Louisiana

In addition to giving tax credits to families, teachers, and directors, the Louisiana School Readiness Tax Credit provides an incentive for businesses to make contributions to child care. Businesses that construct, renovate, or expand a child care center, purchase equipment for a center, maintain or operate a center, or subsidize child care for their employees can receive a tax credit, the amount of which is based on the star rating of the center. Businesses may also receive a tax credit for donations made to CCR&R agencies that provide technical assistance for programs that improve their Quality Start QRIS star status.
