These limited Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) tax credits are available now, on a first-come, first-served basis.

What is the benefit of purchasing NAP Tax Credits?
Qualified donations to Saint Louis Counseling generate a 50% Missouri State Tax Credit, thus reducing the out-of-pocket cost to make a gift. Tax credits may be applied to the tax year in which the donation was made, or at any time in the next five tax years.
Contribution example for the 28% federal tax bracket:
|Tax Credit (50%)||–$500|
|Federal Income Tax Deduction (28%)||–$280|
|State Income Tax Deduction (6%)||–$60|
*The above example shows cost savings in the year the gift is made for someone in the 28% federal tax bracket, who itemizes on their federal and state tax returns. Individuals in lower or higher tax brackets and those subject to the Alternative Minimum Tax would have slightly different tax savings. A gift of appreciated securities also would provide additional tax benefits related to avoiding capital gains. The above example is not intended to represent tax advice. Please consult your tax advisor to learn how tax credits will benefit you specifically.
What steps do I need to take to purchase NAPs that benefit Saint Louis Counseling?
