Learn About Changing
Charitable Tax Credit
Get ready for some changes to the way
you fill out your state income taxes. The
Michigan Tax Code Credits for Charitable
Gifts, in place since December 1988, will
expire on Dec. 31, eliminating a 50 percent
tax credit for taxpayers who donate to com-
munity organizations and foundations,
homeless shelters, food banks and public
institutions. The tax credit helps taxpayers
support causes they care about and enrich-
es the entire community.
The Community Foundation for
Southeast Michigan can help taxpayers
learn more about calculating the amount of
the credit, which offers more benefit than a
tax deduction, for their charitable contribu-
tions before the deadline. Visit www.cfsem.
org/taxcredit for more information.
