FINANCIAL AID

 
The Lutheran High School Association of Greater Milwaukee is proud to be part of a community that supports each other emotionally, spiritually, and financially. 
All financial aid awards are funded by an amazing group of donors and supporters of Martin Luther.
 
Martin Luther uses TADS to assist with determining levels of donor funded financial aid for its families.
 
A completed TADS application should be submitted by April 15, 2020.  A 2019 W2, 1040, and other tax forms will need to be submitted online to TADS to complete this application. 
 
Financial Aid can be applied for through TADS after April 15, 2020. However, the majority of financial aid will be awarded to those families that meet the April 15 deadline.
 
Potential New Family? Please Take Note: New families may desire to know a financial aid amount early in the application process and prior to the completion of their 2019 taxes. Conditional financial aid awards can be granted as soon as possible to new students. This process should be initiated through contact with the admissions director.
 
A TADS financial aid application can be submitted with a 2018 tax return at any time. 2019 tax information will still need to be submitted to TADS by April 15, 2020 to verify that award amount. Martin Luther reserves the right to change the financial aid award due to significant change in the financial situation of the family from 2018 to 2019.
 
For further questions about the TADS application process or tuition assistance considerations, please contact the Director of Enrollment Management, Abbie Amling.

WISCONSIN TAX DEDUCTION

Beginning with the tax year 2014, the State of Wisconsin has introduced a new legislation (Wis. Stat. § 71.05(6)(b)49), in which private school tuition payments paid on or after January 1, 2014 are now eligible for an annual income tax deduction. Qualified taxpayers may potentially claim up to $4,000 for each dependent child in grades Kindergarten through 8th and up to $10,000 for each dependent child in grades 9th through 12th. Tuition claimed must be paid in the tax year in which it is being filed.

For more information on how to claim these expenses, visit the Wisconsin Department of Revenue form online: Schedule PS - Private School Tuition. In preparing the form, taxpayers will need our FEIN which is 39-0889672, as well as the amount of tuition paid last year.

To obtain proof of tuition payments, log into your TADS account and click the billing tab. Enter the tax filing year into “Household Paid Tuition Tax Report” and hit submit. TADS can be reached at 612-548-3320 and will address questions about accessing the report.
