As a licensed child care camp facility, benefactors who give to Annunciation Heights are eligible to receive not only a tax write off, but a tax credit. Currently, the state of Colorado is offering what is called a Child Care Contribution Tax Credit. This credit seeks to increase the quality and availability of child care. The state allows you to take up to a 50% tax credit on your state income taxes when you donate to qualified child care programs, of which Annunciation Heights is one! Our office will mail Child Card Contribution Credit certificates to donors in January with donation amounts qualifying for the tax credit.
What is the Child Care Contribution Credit?
“Taxpayers that make a qualifying monetary contribution to promote child care in Colorado may claim an income tax credit of 50% of the total qualifying contribution. The contribution must be monetary; contributions of services or property (including shares of stock) do not qualify for the credit. The contribution must be made for an eligible child care purpose and to a licensed child care facility (which Annunciation Heights is a licensed child care facility).
The credit is equal to 50% of the taxpayer’s qualifying contribution made during the tax year except that the credit a taxpayer can claim for any tax year cannot exceed $100,000. The $100,000 limitation applies jointly to two taxpayers filing a joint income tax return together. Additionally, the credit is nonrefundable. Consequently, the amount of credit a taxpayer uses for a given tax year (in combination with all other nonrefundable credits the tax payer claims) cannot exceed the taxpayer’s income tax liability for that year. If a taxpayer’s credit exceeds the total tax due, the taxpayer can carry forward the excess credit to the following tax year. Taxpayers can carry forward excess credits for up to five years, but must use the excess credits in the earliest tax year possible.”
