Individuals or corporations who make a contribution to support the local matching fund of an approved early learning collaborative may be eligible to receive a 1:1 state tax credit for the donated amount up to $1 million. The Mississippi Department of Revenue can approve 1:1 tax credits up to the amount the legislature appropriates to the Early Learning Collaborative Act each year.
Pre-K Tax Credit
In 2021 the legislature appropriated $16 million; therefore, the sum of the donations in this calendar year eligible for the tax credit may not exceed $16 million.
