Did you know - you can use your state tax refund to support your favorite Colorado Nonprofit?

Enterprise Zone Tax Credit

All gifts to EUREKA! are tax-deductible to the fullest extent possible! Not only may donors deduct their gifts on both federal and state returns, they also may be able to claim the additional Enterprise Zone tax credit on their State of Colorado return. This means that, depending upon a donor’s tax bracket and itemizations, a donation may cost the donor less than the amount of the contribution.

Cash donations of $50 or more may be eligible for a 25% tax credit on donor’s Colorado State Income Tax Return. In-kind gifts valued at $100 or above may be eligible for a 12.5% tax credit on donor’s Colorado State Tax Return. In-kind donations of $2,000 or more must be accompanied by valuation documentation.

Example

Cash Donation $1,000

Income tax benefit of gift
Federal tax rate – 28% – $280 (reduces taxable income)
Colorado tax Rate – 4.63% – $46.30 (reduces taxable income)
Colorado Enterprise Zone Tax Credit – 25% – $250 (toward the CO State Tax Liability)
For a $1,000 donation the Total Tax Savings – 57.63% = $576.30
