Iowa Tuition Assistance Tax Credit
The state has recognized the need to support taxpayers who wish to support Christian education. Starting immediately, Iowa taxpayers can receive a tax credit up to 65% of their donation that supports families who need tuition assistance and deduct 100% of the gift on Federal Income Tax. How does it work?
You must owe Iowa state income tax.
You must make out check to NICSTO (Northwest Iowa Christian School Tuition Organization) and designate it to Unity Christian.
Download and complete the "Contribution Memo" and send it with the check to Unity Christian.
NICSTO will send you a letter of receipt for your Federal Tax information.
In early January, you will receive a tax credit certificate to attach to your Iowa tax form.
Example: You give $1,000 to NICSTO, you take $650 off your Iowa tax bill and $1,000 deduction from your Federal reported income.
Your money will be used for families who qualify for tuition assistance at Unity Christian High School.
