Loss of state tax credit could affect donations to Michigan nonprofits
If you donate to charities next year, don’t expect any thanks from state government.
As part of the recently signed state budget, Michigan tax credits for donating to food banks, homeless shelters and community foundations will be eliminated.
Leaders of local nonprofit groups are divided on the effect of the change, though all hope Michigan residents will continue to donate. Charitable donations make up large portions of their operating budgets.
