(KTEN) — A new date has been set by the Oklahoma Tax Commission for enrollment in the state's new Parental Choice Tax Credit program.

Applications were originally set to open last Friday, but have now been delayed until this Wednesday, December 6.

The program lets parents who pay or expect to pay private school tuition apply for a tax credit of $5,000 to $7,500.

"If you want to home-school your kids, that's great; there's a $1,000 refundable tax credit available," said Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt in a prepared statement. "We want to make this process as simple as possible, so we're rolling out resources that will help schools and families take full advantage of this tax credit."

Applicants will need to supply each students name and Social Security number, along with an Enrollment Verification Form from the registered, accredited private school.

Additional information and an application is available at the Oklahoma Parental Choice Tax Credit website, or by calling 918-554-5440.
