North Dakota Tax Credit
Are you a North Dakota individual taxpayer or an owner of a North Dakota business? A beneficiary of a trust or estate which derives income taxable in North Dakota? If so, you have been presented with an unprecendented tax credit if you make gifts that help secure the future of a qualified North Dakota nonprofit organization(s) through a gift to its qualified endowment fund(s).

 The ND State Legislature has approved and Governor Dalrymple has signed into law Senate Bill 2160. This law allows for generous tax CREDITS for individuals and business who give specific types of gifts to North Dakota charities. The credit may be carried forward for 3 additional tax years if it cannot all be used in one year.

How the Tax Credit Works for Individual Donors
The 2011 legislation allows a 40% tax credit for gifts by individuals to a qualified endowment fund held by a qualifying North Dakota nonprofit organization. If an individual makes a gift(s) to an endowment fund, the aggregate of the year’s gifts to a particular fund must be $5,000 or more. The tax credit is 40% of the charitable deduction allowed by the IRS up to a maximum credit of $10,000 per year per taxpayer or $20,000 (50,000 in gifts) per year per couple filing jointly. Unused credits may be carried forward for up to three additional tax years.
