The Kansas Community Service Program authorizes tax credits against the state income tax, premium tax and privilege tax for businesses that make contributions toward state-approved community service capital projects. The awarded organizations or entities must engage in activities that meet demonstrated needs in the state in the areas of community service, health care, crime prevention and/or youth apprenticeship and technical training.
Contributions toward approved projects are eligible for up to a 50 percent credit. Contributions toward approved projects in designated rural areas are eligible for up to a 70 percent credit. The Community Development Division of Commerce administers this program, determining the eligibility of contributing recipients by process of application (Schedule K-60 K.S.A. 79-32,194 et seq.).
