This study examines the fiscal impact of a proposal to create a personal tax credit for educational expenses and a tax-credit scholarship program in Kentucky. It finds that the actual fiscal impact of the program would be much less than its nominal dollar size, due to the reduced public school costs resulting from migration of students from public schools to private schools. Specifically, it finds that the net impact of creating $60 million in tax-credit scholarships would be only $2 million to $17 million, and the net impact of giving $23.2 million in personal tax credits would be only $11.4 million. (Contains 7 figures, 5 tables and 7 endnotes.)
