Colorado Tax Credit

Giving to RMHC-Denver Makes Good Financial Sense

Your gift may qualify for the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit

Financial contributions to RMHC-Denver, of $250 or more in one calendar year, qualify for the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit (CCTC), a 50% tax credit on Colorado state taxes.  If you’re a Colorado tax filer, the CCTC significantly reduces the “cost” of your gift.

The table to the right shows examples of how the CCTC can benefit you:

Figures in the table are based on a 28% federal tax bracket and an itemized federal tax return. Example is for illustration only and does not apply to everyone. Please consult your accountant or tax specialist regarding your unique tax situation.

Chart showing CTC examples


  • The maximum credit you may take in any one year is $100,000 or your actual Colorado income tax liability for the year, whichever is less.
  • Any unused credit may be carried forward for up to five additional tax years.
  • Only monetary donations are eligible. Stock or other securities and in-kind gifts, such as labor or equipment, are not eligible but may qualify for other tax benefits. Donations through a Donor Advised Fund do not qualify.
  • In the case of donations associated with events, only the deductible portion of your payment, reduced by the value of goods and services received, is eligible.
  • Both individuals and corporations can take advantage of the credit.

We will automatically send a notice, along with the necessary paperwork, to donors that qualify at the end of the year. *Note: Gifts made through donor advised funds do not qualify for the CCTC Contribution Credit.
