Once the application is returned to the Coalition for Life office, it may spend 2–3 days in internal processing. Then it is sent to the state government. It may take 45–90 days for the state to send the tax credit information to you. We would encourage you to be prompt about returning your tax credit application to the Coalition because the credits are offered on a first come, first serve basis. Also note, the State gets a large amount of traffic right before tax season (February–April), and it may take them longer than 45 days to process your application.
