Notice: In 2019, the Mississippi Legislature passed the Children’s Promise Act, which authorized a tax credit for businesses when they donate to an Eligible Charitable Organization. There is no cap for each individual business taxpayer; however, the total amount that can be allocated is $5,000,000 for all business taxpayers combined. The Department foresees that applications for the entire $5,000,000 will be submitted soon after the application process opens on January 1, 2020. For more guidelines on how the credits will be allocated, please click here.
Update 12/13/19 - Taxpayers planning to apply for an Allocation of Business Contributions Made to Eligible Charitable Organizations on January 1, 2020, may send a test e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org during regular business hours. The Department will respond with the time received shown on our e-mail system. The Department's email system is unable to accept emails over 25MB.
