Tax Credit Program
We appreciate any and all donations because the horrible fact is that many women and children come to us with just the clothes on their backs. Also, we have available a tax credit program for those of our donors who would like to claim their donations. The sponsoring entity is the Missouri Department of Social Services, and the program name is the Domestic Violence Shelter Tax Credit Program. A 50% tax credit is available to all Missouri taxpayers who make an eligible contribution of at least $100.00 or more to Christos House, a qualified shelter through this program.
Individuals, corporations, partnerships, 8-corporations, express companies, and LLC’s are all eligible donors. Eligible contributions include cash, stocks, bonds, marketable securities, buildings, and land.
Donors receive a credit in the amount of 50% of the value of their donation when they file their Missouri Income Tax return. This tax credit is in addition to the federal deduction for the donation. After making the donation, the donor completes a brief application and forwards it along with proof of the donation to: Christos House, P.O. Box 771, West Plains, MO 65775, where it will be signed and forwarded on. The donor then receives the necessary paperwork to take the tax credit within a few weeks. The donor may carry the tax credit forward for four successive years.
