The credit is either 50% of the total amount contributed during the taxable year, or 70% of the total amount contributed during the taxable year if the approved community service organization is located in a rural community as defined in the law. If the credit allowed exceeds the tax liability, the excess will be refunded. Exception: A business firm who acquired the tax credit from a business firm not subject to Kansas income, privilege or premiums tax must carry forward the unused assigned credit. The credit may be carried forward for up to 5 years, except that the total credit must be claimed within 10 years after the tax year the contribution was made.
Addition Modification Required. Taxpayers claiming this credit (except those claiming an assigned credit) must make an addition modification on the Kansas return for the amount of any charitable contribution claimed on the federal return and used as the basis for the Community Service Contribution Credit.
Assigned Credits. If you are claiming a credit that was sold, assigned, or conveyed to you by a business firm not subject to Kansas tax, you must enclose with Schedule K-60 copies of the written agreement assigning the credit, the notification sent to the Director of Community Development, KDOC, as well as the acknowledgment letter received from KDOC.
