Community Investment Tax Credit Program
Please be advised that Just-A-Start has fully utilized its 2018 CITC allocation. More credits will be available later in 2019 for donors wishing to participate in the CITC program.
JAS has a wonderful opportunity for all donors: the Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC) program which provides a 50% refundable state tax credit to donations of $1,000 or more to JAS.
Your donation will have a huge impact on the community improvement work that JAS does every day because for every donation over $1,000, you will receive 50% back in the form of reduced state taxes (or a refund from the state). You may also be able to take a federal deduction on your donation.
CITC benefits to donors:
- Considerable tax savings.
- If the tax credit exceeds your state tax liability, the state will send you a refund.
- Individuals, foundations, corporations, and other nonprofit organizations can take advantage of the CITC.
