It does sound a little too good to be true–you can give money to help students attend private schools without really paying a dime? Yes, you can!
It’s actually really simple! Just look at last year’s tax return to find out how much you owed, give that amount to a tuition scholarship organization, then you’ll get it all back in your refund.
Perhaps you aren’t aware of how much you can donate. If you are a single, you can donate the first $500 that you owe in state tax. Couples can donate up to $1,000!
