Re: “Cuomo's education tax credit raises questions

Regarding your question of "[w]ould the tax credit for a donation to a Catholic school...breach the boundaries that separate church and state," you should know that the only type of school the Education Tax Credit would directly help would be public schools by encouraging individuals and businesses to make voluntary charitable donations to supplement public funding. Tax credits would not be allowed for donations directly to private or religious schools as the legislation specifically excludes direct subsidies to these schools.

In addition to encouraging voluntary charitable donations for public schools, the Education Tax Credit would encourage donations to non-profit scholarship funds. Scholarship recipients could use the scholarships to attend non-resident public or private schools, some of which may be religiously affiliated. According to the U.S. Supreme Court's Winn decision (2011) regarding tax credits for charitable donations to non-profit scholarship organizations, having religious schools among those students may choose to attend does not present constitutional problems.
