Colorado Childcare Contribution Tax Credit
LCS is licensed by the Department of Human Services as a child care center for our preschool program. A donation to LCS may qualify you, as a taxpayer, for a 50% State of Colorado tax credit, in addition to the normal state and federal deductions for the donation. For more information, please contact your CPA or financial adviser for the specifics of these significant potential tax savings.
Here’s an example…
An individual in the 25% federal income tax bracket who makes a $1000 contribution to LCS will obtain a reduction in their combined federal and Colorado income taxes of around $800. Simply put, this means that a $1000 donation to LCS will have an after-tax cost of about $200.
