Some additional information from the Central Pennsylvania Scholarship Fund’s website, Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. When was the Central Pennsylvania Scholarship Fund formed? When were related SPEs established?
Randy Tarpey, a Certified Public Accountant, established the Central Pennsylvania Scholarship Fund on September 13, 2011. With the amendment to Article XVII-F of the Tax Reform Code through Act 194, effective October 31, 2014, the EITC/OSTC definition of “business firm” and “pass-through entity” was expanded to allow for the use of credits on joint and personal income tax returns. As such, Randy established the Central Pennsylvania Special Purpose Entity on August 7, 2015.
Q. Why did Randy Tarpey create the Central Pennsylvania Scholarship Fund?
With a passion to help more children in Pennsylvania receive a quality, private school education, Randy Tarpey established the Central Pennsylvania Scholarship Fund. This vehicle for giving allows individuals not qualified to receive credits directly from Pennsylvania an opportunity to receive the same tax benefit.
Please plan on joining us on February 19th, 2019 at 12:15 for our meeting and guest presentation!
