Tax Credit


  • Rose Brooks has 50% Missouri State Tax Credits available.

  • What is the difference between a tax deduction and a tax credit?

- A tax credit is generally considered more beneficial than a standard tax deduction.

- A Tax Deduction reduces the amount of taxable income.

- A Tax Credit directly reduces the amount of taxes owed.

- A State Tax Credit is deducted from the bottom line of your State taxes owed.

For example: a $5,000 donation can be deducted from your Federal taxes as usual, reducing your taxable income;
Additionally, if awarded a tax credit, the donor may deduct $2,500 from income taxes owed to the State of Missouri.


  • Tax credits may be used by individuals, businesses or foundations with business income tax liability in Missouri.

  • Monetary donations must be $100.00 or greater to apply.  If monetary donations over the calendar year total $100.00 or more, you can submit multiple donations on one application with proper documentation.


  • Your tax credit application must be filed with the State of Missouri within one year of the date of the donation in order to be eligible for tax credits.

  • Download the appropriate application below and complete the information required from you.

  • You must provide the required documentation which is described on the tax credit application.  If the donation was made by check, you must provide a copy of the front and back of the cancelled check or provide a bank statement clearly showing your name and the payment to Rose Brooks Center.  If the donation was made by credit card, you must submit a copy of your credit card statement clearly showing your name and the payment to Rose Brooks Center.

  • Return your completed part of the application and the required documentation to Rose Brooks Center, Attn: Marla Svoboda, PO Box 320599, Kansas City, MO 64132-0599.

  • Rose Brooks Center will complete its part of the application and forward it to the appropriate State agency.


  • Tax credits are given on a first come, first served basis.

  • If you wish to have your tax credit certificate by the April 15, tax deadline, the State must receive your application by February 15 of that year.

  • Please remember that the State makes all final determinations regarding tax credit awards.

  • Any goods and services received will be subtracted from your donation amount. 

For example: a $1,000 donation is made at an event with $100 of goods and services received.  $900 is eligible to be submitted for a 50% Missouri tax credit which could results in a tax credit award of $450.
