FOX Awarded $200,000 in Tax Credits
Presenting a Tremendous Opportunity For Donors
Hutchinson’s Historic FOX Theatre has received an award of $200,000 in tax credits from the Kansas Department of Commerce’s Community Service Tax Credit Program. The FOX is one of just 23 nonprofit organizations in the state to be awarded these tax credits, which can be used to provide support for capital fundraising projects. The theatre will use funds from donors who wish to take advantage of these credits to help complete our Stage & Technology Improvement Project, which includes repairing the 84- year-old theatre’s damaged and deteriorating stage floor structure while also updating electronic and technical equipment and systems associated with presenting live performing arts events. These repairs and updates have become increasingly critical over the past few years, threatening to prevent the continued operation of the FOX as a live performance venue.
Each year, nonprofit community service organizations submit proposals to the Department of Commerce. If the organization is awarded tax credits, it is then authorized to offer those credits to donors making contributions to the approved fund-raising project. Tax credits for this program are allocated to these groups annually at a rate of 50% in non-rural areas. As an example, qualified donors who give $1,000 to an approved project in a non-rural area would receive a 50 percent (or $500) tax credit against their Kansas income tax liability. If the donor does not have any Kansas tax liability, they will receive a check from the state for the amount of the credit (in this case $500). In addition, the donor would receive federal tax benefits if they itemize, which would again decrease their tax liability.
Donors can take advantage of these credits right now by making a contribution to the theatre, and in exchange receive tax credits valued at 50% of their donation to be used during the next 18 months for their 2015 or 2016 Kansas state income taxes. The is an exceptional opportunity to stretch your giving dollars much further than otherwise possible and make a big difference in the future of Hutchinson’s Historic Fox Theatre, a nationally significant and cherished landmark.
*Tax Credits available on a first come, first served basis.
