Montana Endowment Tax Credit
The Montana Endowment Tax Credit provides an extraordinary opportunity to reduce your Montana taxes by directing funds to an endowment at the Foundation. Currently, the tax credit provides one of the greatest philanthropic opportunities. You may receive a federal income tax deduction for your gift, a credit on your Montana state income taxes and capital gains tax savings if appreciated assets are given. Funding for the future through endowment giving means your gift is held and invested in perpetuity and only investment income is used for accomplishing the purpose of your gift.
Individuals are required to donate through a planned gift which is as simple as establishing a charitable deferred payment gift annuity with the FMDH Foundation and allows a tax credit of up to 40% against Montana income tax owed. The maximum credit is $10,000 per individual or $20,000 if you file jointly. Cash, securities, real estate, and other assets may be used to fund a charitable planned giving instrument to qualify for the tax credit.
The maximum credit that may be claimed for all contributions by a corporation doing business in Montana is $10,000 per year and the credit is limited to 20% of the charitable contribution. Direct gifts of cash, securities, real estate, or other assets qualify for the tax credit.
Small Businesses and Estates
Partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs), small businesses (S Corporations), and estate beneficiaries are allowed the same Montana Tax Credit – up to $10,000 per year per partner in LLCs, partnerships, or S Corporations, and per estate beneficiary. The credit is limited to 20% of the charitable contribution. Direct gifts of cash, securities, real estate, or other assets qualify for the tax credit.
