Tax Credit

Tax Credits Are Now 70%

Great news! As of July 1, 2022, the amount of tax credit you will receive increases from the current 50% to 70%! That’s right, for a $100 gift, you will receive $70 back on your Missouri taxes with an approved application to the state.


What is a Tax Credit?

A tax credit is a sum subtracted from the total amount a taxpayer owes to the state. Unlike deductions and exemptions that reduce taxable income, credits directly reduce taxes owed. The value of the credits is subtracted from the total amount of owed taxes. Rose Brooks Center currently has Missouri Domestic Violence (DV) Tax Credits for up to 70% of your gift.

Who is eligible?

Any individual or business who pays taxes in Missouri.

What is the minimum gift amount?

Any gifts made to Rose Brooks Center totaling $100 or more in a calendar year.

What if I donated prior to July 1, 2022 AND after July 1, 2022?

If you are applying for gifts made in 2022, please make separate applications for donations after July 1st with the higher rate. The same form can be used to apply for the 50% rate and the 70% rate, but please still make separate applications. You may include more than one donation on an application, just be sure to list all the appropriate dates.

Is it difficult to apply and how long does it take to receive them?

Applying for a Missouri DV Tax Credit only requires you to fill out less than 10 fields on the Application Form and supply proof of donation. Fill it out, sign it, mail in the original to Rose Brooks Center – and you’re done. Once we receive the application, approve and sign it, we send it on to the State of Missouri Department of Social Services. The State then will mail credits directly to you. Please allow 4-6 weeks for this process!

What do I use for my proof of donation?

If the donation was made by check, you must provide a copy of the front and back of the cancelled check or provide a bank statement clearly showing your name and the payment to Rose Brooks Center. If the donation was made by credit card, you must submit a copy of your credit card statement clearly showing your name and the payment to Rose Brooks Center. You may blackout other account information. Rose Brooks Center thank you letters are not considered proof by the State.

What if I don’t itemize my deductions?

You do not have to itemize your deductions to use a Missouri Tax Credit.

Are DV Tax Credits Transferable?

Although some tax credits are salable, domestic violence tax credits are not – making them non-transferable.

What can tax credits be applied to?

Income (excluding withholding tax), Corporate Franchise Tax, Bank Tax, Insurance Premium Tax, Express Companies Tax.
