Tax Credit Consulting: Donations to Medical Research Broomfield CO

The fact that a business might receive a tax credit for money devoted to research and development under programs designed to encourage R&D for its potential economic impact makes it seem logical that donations by individuals would qualify for credits as well. The fact is that several States have programs that give direct tax credits for individual donations to qualified Medical Research programs.

Tax Credits for Donations to Medical Research

Tax Credits for Donations to Medical Research

The fact that a business might receive a tax credit for money devoted to research and development under programs designed to encourage R&D for its potential economic impact makes it seem logical that donations by individuals would qualify for credits as well. The fact is that several States have programs that give direct tax credits for individual donations to qualified Medical Research programs.

A tax credit has a major advantage over a tax deduction. The tax credit comes directly off the amount of tax owed. Therefore, it is not subject to any modification based on income or tax rate. If you have a tax credit of $1000, you are going to owe $1000 less tax regardless of your income. If you have a tax deduction of $1000, your actual savings is going to be $1000 times whatever your tax rate is based on your gross adjusted income. The more money you earn, the higher your tax rate and the more your deduction will save you in tax actually owed.
