Enterprise Zone Tax Credit
FCMoD is an Enterprise Zone Project, which permits a Colorado 25% tax credit for Colorado taxpayers who make cash contributions to Fort Collins Museum of Discovery. Your gift can benefit your family and your tax dollars!
The Enterprise Zone Program is a tax incentive to encourage job growth and contributions in our area. On March 11, 2010, the Office of Economic Development and International Trade approved Fort Collins Museum of Discovery (FCMoD) to be an Enterprise Zone Project.
Colorado State’s Enterprise Zone legislation permits a 25% tax credit, with an annual credit limit of $100,000, for Colorado taxpayers who make cash contributions to FCMoD. In-kind and stock contributions receive a 12.5% tax credit. The following example illustrates how a contribution of $1,000 may impact your federal and state tax liabilities thereby lessening the cost of your donation.
Please consult your financial advisor regarding deductibility as individual situations vary.
State law requires a Social Security or Colorado State ID number be provided to receive this credit. Download the Colorado Department of Revenue’s DR-0075 form here to complete with your name, address and social security number. Alternatively, you may call the Development Department with your social security number at (970) 416-2726. Please return the form or call us with your social security number within 45 days of donation date. Please know that FCMoD will keep your social security number in the highest confidence.
Pending final approval, you should receive a copy of the approved and executed form from the Larimer County Enterprise Zone Office within eight weeks of receipt of your completed form.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to call the Development Department directly at (970) 416-2216.
