NJ State Assemblywoman Angela McKnight has introduced a bill that would give New Jersey homeschoolers a tax break.

Under the proposal, a homeschooling family earning less than $150,000/year would be eligible for a tax credit of $1,000 per child up to $3,000 per year.

“Regardless of where or how they are educated, all students in New Jersey deserve access to resources that will support their development and prepare them to compete in the global economy,” McKnight, D-Jersey City, said in a statement.

“If parents decide that the home is the best learning environment for their children, a tax credit can help offset the cost of the many expensive yet fundamental educational resources they will need.”
