Tax Credit Consulting: Donations to Medical Research Horn Lake MS

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.
