State Tax Credits Now Available!
West Virginia state tax credits are now available for a donation of $500 or more to the Gabriel Project. Individuals as well as businesses can take advantage of these tax credits.
How do these tax credits work?
Once your donation is received by the Gabriel Project, you will receive 50% of your donated amount in the form of state tax credits.
If you are donating as an individual, you may use your credits to reduce your West Virginia Personal Income Tax liability. If you are donating as a business, you may use your credits to reduce your West Virginia Corporate Net Income Tax.
Tax credits reduce total tax liability (the amount you owe the state). In other words, your donation to the Gabriel Project will allow you to make a smaller tax payment to the State of West Virginia. But state tax credits are not all you receive for your donation. You can also claim a federal tax deduction as well. Estimates are that 75% to 85% of your donation to us will come back to you through state tax credits plus federal tax deductions.
How can the Gabriel Project offer state tax credits?
The state tax credits offered by the Gabriel Project are through the West Virginia Neighborhood Investment Program (NIP). This program was established by the WV Legislature in 1996 to increase charitable giving to nonprofit organizations in the state. The Gabriel Project has been a participant in the Neighborhood Investment Program for over ten years.
How soon can I apply these tax credits? Are there restrictions on their use?
Donations made on or before December 31, 2016 can apply their tax credits to the 2016 personal income tax year. Tax credits may not be used to reduce your total tax liability on any one tax by more than 50 percent annually. However any unused credits may be carried over for the next tax period as along as they are used within a 5-year period.
