Community Service Tax Credits Available

Taxes The Greeley-Wallace County Healthcare Foundation has been awarded credits for 2013-2014 tax years. As a rural community, the credits are offered at 70% of the contribution.

Community Service Tax Credits are awarded by the Kansas Department of Commerce and offer the contributor an opportunity to positively impact a local project. An individual or business who has an obligation for Kansas State Income taxes may donate to this project. In order to receive a tax credit, an individual or business must contribute at least $250 to the Greeley-Wallace County Healthcare Foundation. For example, if you owe the State of Kansas $1,000 you may contribute that amount to the Greeley-Wallace County Healthcare Foundation and receive a $700 tax credit certificate. You will send the tax credit and the remaining $300 to the State of Kansas. The entire $1,000 donation is then eligible to be used as a charitable tax deduction on your federal tax returns. A person interested in contributing to this project should consult their tax advisor to understand how these credits may benefit them. The tax credits are available on a first come, first serve basis and are expected to go quickly.

The Healthcare Foundation plans to assist Greeley County Health Services in purchasing a comprehensive communications system which will benefit patients and employees in the Greeley County Hospital, long term care and clinics in Tribune and Sharon Springs.
