School Readiness Tax Credits

Did you know that you can keep your tax dollars in our community and support early learners?

For each LA Tax ID, you can contribute up to $5,000 to the Jefferson Ready Start Network’s Future Fund and receive a dollar-for-dollar refundable credit on Louisiana State taxes as part of School Readiness Tax Credits.
