What is the Pregnancy Resource Center Tax Credit?
By contributing to a qualified pregnancy resource center, like Birthright St. Charles, Missouri taxpayers help fund services for women with unplanned or crisis pregnancies, and can earn a state tax credit.
Pregnancy Resource Center Tax Credit Process
A donation of $100 or more MAY qualify for the Missouri Pregnancy Resource Center Tax Credit which provides a tax credit equal to 70% of your donation. Tax credits follow a fiscal year beginning July 1st and ending June 30. Once an eligible donation is received, the proper paperwork will be forwarded to the donor from our office. Once that paperwork is completed and returned to the Birthright St. Charles office, it will be forwarded to the state. Once the application is processed, the donor will receive a PRC Tax Credit certificate in the mail from the state of Missouri.
Donors can claim up to a $50,000 credit per tax year!
Donations can be made by cash, check, credit card, stocks, bonds and other marketable securities as well as real estate. Note: Donations that include a benefit to the donor will be reduced by that amount, i.e. a meal at a fundraising banquet.
The amount of the claimed tax credit may not exceed the amount of the taxpayer’s state income tax liability for the year the credit is being claimed. Any tax credit that cannot be claimed in the tax year associated with the contribution may be carried forward and used against a taxpayer’s state tax liability the next succeeding tax year.
