When the business files their income taxed with the Louisiana Department of Revenue, they will claim the credit and attach the receipt as documentation.Because it’s a refundable tax credit, if the business owes less than the amount of their donation, the state will actually write them a check.
So, if a business donated $5,000 but only owed $4,000 in taxes, the state will mail them a $1,000 check.The refundable credit can be taken against individual income tax, corporation income tax, or corporation franchise tax depending on the business’s entity type.
The Louisiana Department of Revenue also offers some additional information, including links to the relevant laws, on their web site: http://www.revenue.louisiana.gov/sections/individual/school_readiness.aspx#taxcred5.It’s the very last tax credit mentioned on the page.
The Society of Louisiana Certified Public Accountants recently highlighted the program in their newsletter in an article available at http://www.lcpa.org/lagniappe_Oct12_schoolreadiness.html.less
