HURRY–55% Tax Credit opportunity available until end of April

Help your neighbors in need right here in southern Missouri and receive substantial tax savings!

Catholic Charities of Southern Missouri is excited to announce that it has been awarded State of Missouri tax credits for its affordable housing activities.

  • The Affordable Housing Assistance Program (AHAP) Tax Credits are offered at a rate of 55%! This means that 55% of your contribution is deducted directly from your Missouri tax liability. (For example, a $5,000 donation would receive $2,750 in credits that would be deducted directly from your Missouri taxes.) This is in addition to the federal charitable contribution tax deduction.
  • Eligible donors are businesses or individuals with Missouri tax liability from business activities. This includes a sole proprietorship or an individual partner in a partnership or shareholder in an S-Corporation or LLC, or an individual reporting farm income, or income from rental property or royalties.
  • The minimum donation is $500 and must be received by April 30, 2016.

Your donation will help a struggling family from losing their home!
