Maximize Your Dollars with the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit
Thanks to the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit (CCCTC), donors to ISDenver's Community Giving funds may realize a Colorado state income tax credit equal to 50% of their total contribution. This tax credit is in addition to the regular state and federal income tax deduction.
What does this mean? It means your donation can go much further than you might think. For example, you might consider a $500 donation this year; with the 50% tax credit, you might consider doubling that to make a $1,000 donation, and offset the cost of the increased gift with the $500 reduction in Colorado state income taxes. For more information, please visit the Colorado Department of Revenue website.
|Contribution to ISDenver Community Giving||$100||$250||$1,000||$5,000|
|Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit (50%)||($50)||($125)||($500)||($2,500)|
|Colorado & Federal Income Tax Deduction*||($18)||($42)||($173)||($867)|
*This example is for illustrative purposes only. The Federal income tax deduction is determined using the following calculation (based on $1,000 contribution): ($1,000 – $546) x 28% = $127; State income taxes are 4.63%.
