Taxpayers must apply for pre-approval in order to participate in this program. Once the annual credit cap is met, no additional applications are approved.
The annual cap for the 2014 credits was reached on January 22, 2014. It is expected that the demand for 2015 credits will even be greater. Therefore, it is important to apply early in order to take advantage of this program. Many of the Student Scholarship Organizations are currently accepting “pre-registration” for the 2015 credits.
