For taxable years beginning after Dec. 31, 1993 and before Jan. 1, 1999, any business firm which makes a cash contribution to an approved community service organization is allowed a credit against their tax liability. For taxable years beginning after Dec. 31, 1998, any business firm which makes a contribution to an approved community service organization is allowed a credit against their tax liability. For taxable years beginning after Dec. 31, 2000, the definition of business firm has been expanded to include individuals subject to the state income tax.

The provider of the community services must be approved by the director of community development of the Kansas Department of Commerce. You may download a list of the approved community service organizations.
