Tax Credit Consulting: Donations to Medical Research Tewksbury MA

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

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.

The more money you earn, the higher your tax rate and the more your deduction will save you in tax actually owed.

So, the question could be asked why States are giving tax credits for donations to Medical Research and the Federal tax codes are considering them only as deductions under the heading of charitable deductions. The answer has more to do with the nature of politics in a representative democracy like the United States than with tax codes. Some of the time, a good idea takes a little bit of time getting from the State level to become the law of the whole land.

Tax credits are often used to encourage activities that benefit the country as a whole. Medical Research would certainly seem to fit into that definition. However, the budget demands of the country and the need to get a majority of the Federal Government to accept this idea makes it a slow and time consuming ...
