What is a Tax Credit?

The Anchor House is a qualifying charitable organization that provides a tax credit every time you give a monetary donation. Whether you contribute twenty dollars or one hundred dollars to help the single moms and their kids living at The Anchor House, the government will completely match your contribution, dollar for dollar. In other words, when you help us, you benefit, too!

Tax Credits vs. Tax Deductions

In general, a tax credit will save you more money than a deduction will. When you complete your tax return, you may notice that a tax reduction only lowers the amount of taxable income you have for the previous year. A tax credit, however, is a direct reduction of the total amount of taxes you will owe.

For example, if you have a taxable income of 50,000 dollars and listed 5,000 dollars in tax deductions, your taxable income becomes 45,000 dollars for that year. If the 5,000 dollars is taxed at a rate of 10 percent, you only save 500 dollars in tax. However, if that amount was listed as a tax credit instead of a deduction, you save the full 5,000 dollars in taxes.

Not only will you be providing hope and healing to the families in our community, you’ll also benefit personally when you donate to our safe, supportive space.
