CLAIMING YOUR 2017 TAX CREDIT
- The tax credit certification numbers are provided by the Indiana Department of Revenue and must be included on your 2017 Indiana tax return to receive the state tax credit (see sample receipt letter below).
- Please remember that the amount of the credit is 50% of the contribution amount.
- When filing your state return, your credit should be reported on line 7 of Schedule 6, and on Schedule IN-OCC 55629 with the certification number in column C and the code number 849 in column D. Click here for a copy of Schedule IN-OCC-55629-2017.
- If your credits are greater than your state adjusted gross income tax (2017 IT-40, line 8), you may carry the unused amount forward to be applied to subsequent annual filings for up to nine (9) years. You may utilize any potential credits that you have carried forward from past years using these same instructions.
- The receipt letter you received can also be used to document your gift to Sagamore Institute when filing your 2017 federal tax return.
