Missouri Tax Credit Instructions

We are excited to announce that as of July 1st, 2016, any financial gift accepted by Coalition For Life St. Louis over $100 may be eligible for tax credits. For all agencies distributing tax credits the amount of credits available cannot exceed $3.5 million in a state fiscal year (July 1 through June 30). These funds are issued equally to all qualified agencies statewide, and any additional funds not used will be re-distributed on a first come, first serve basis.

If your donation(s) to Coalition For Life St. Louis meet or exceed the amount of $100 in a calendar year (January 1st through December 31st) then you will be sent a tax credit application in the mail which you will fill out and then mail back to Coalition For Life St. Louis. After internal processing, which may take 2–3 days, the Coalition will send the application to the state government. The state may take 45–90 days to process the application. They will then send information to you on how to apply your tax credits to your taxes.

While these tax credits are a huge opportunity to give a much larger gift, there are limited funds to go around, and they are distributed on a first come, first serve basis. For this reason, we ask that your send your application back to us as soon as possible. If you have any questions please call the Coalition For Life St. Louis office at (314) 827-4039.

WHAT IS THE TYPICAL TIME FRAME?2021-03-19T15:38:06-05:00

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.

UNSURE OF WHERE YOU ARE IN THE PROCESS?2020-03-28T08:23:55-05:00
