Contributions to educational entities, like Idaho Public Television, qualify for an Idaho tax . You can claim this credit on your Idaho tax form whether or not you itemize deductions. The credit is available to all Idaho taxpayers.
We encourage you to consult with a tax advisor to discuss your specific situation.
Idaho Statute - Income tax credit for charitable contributions.
“In our clients’ tax planning and charitable giving strategies, we remind them that the Idaho Education Tax Credit is not a deduction, it is a tax credit. A tax credit lowers your tax dollar for dollar; whereas a deduction, lowers your taxable income and the value of that deduction depends on your tax bracket. The Idaho Education Tax Credit incentivizes clients to give to qualifying entities, such as Idaho Public Television. It is an investment into our community and saves state income tax, as well.”
