Community Service Tax Credit Program

Applications Accepted through May 31, 2020

Each year since 1994, the Community Service Tax Credit Program (CSP) has given nonprofit organizations a way to improve their ability to undertake major capital fund-raising drives for various projects. Tax credits are allocated each year and awarded on a competitive application basis to nonprofit organizations. The nonprofit organization may offer the Kansas income tax credits to contributors of approved projects.

Projects eligible for tax credit awards include community service, crime prevention, health care and youth apprenticeship and technical training. This year, $1 million of the $4.1 million CSP credits available will be designated specifically for childcare centers.

Based on the scope and cost of the proposed project, applicants may request up to $250,000 in tax credits. Applicant organizations in rural areas (populations less than 15,000) are eligible for a 70 percent credit. Applicant organizations in non-rural areas are eligible for a 50 percent credit.
