Tuition Tax Credits Proposed in South Carolina Senate

A bill to help S.C. parents pay the cost of private school was introduced again in the state Senate Wednesday.

State Sen. Larry Grooms, R-Berkeley, introduced the bill, similar to one that passed in the S.C. House last year but stalled in the Senate.

The bill would give tax deductions to parents who home school their children or send them to private school. It also would give tax credits for donations to nonprofit scholarship programs that provide grants for low-income children or those with disabilities to attend private schools.
