AHAP DEADLINE: April 30
Do you have MISSOURI BUSINESS INCOME?
The AHAP (Affordable Housing Assistance Program) Tax Credit program is a perfect opportunity for you to accomplish both goals at the same time.
Examples of those with Missouri Business Income include partnerships, limited liability corporations (LLCs), sole proprietorships, and rental income. While some tax credit programs can be very complicated, this tax credit program is very simple and can be accomplished by even a small business owner.
The tax credit is 55% of the amount of the donation provided to NHSC and is in addition to any amount of charitable deductions claimed on state and federal tax returns. The after-tax cost of a gift made through this program is usually about 25% of the gift, so a $2,000 gift usually ends up costing the donor $500. But some gifts of stock and other securities can cost even less.
Take a look at the flyer (click the link to the right) to see if the AHAP program can help you support the work of Affordable Housing through NHSC and reduce the impact of Missouri State Income Tax.
Call NHSC for more information about either of these opportunities at 314-996-1317!
