*New for 2016, the amounts have doubled! Formerly the Working Poor tax credit, you can claim a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on your state taxes *(up to $800 filing jointly, $400 filing single). You don’t need to itemize, and you can claim this in addition to school credits. Talk to your accountant for more information.
Also new for 2016, you now have until April 15th, 2017 to make credit eligible contributions that will be applied to your 2016 taxes.
For a lot of us, $800 joint/$400 single is a lot to donate as a lump sum. Why not create a monthly payment plan, giving throughout the year? You’ll be still be able to benefit from a great tax program, while making a substantial donation to an organization that makes big impact on refugees’ lives!
