Your Gifts Go Further at Prodigy: Tax Incentives
Prodigy Ventures is included in the Enterprise Zone Tax Credit program through the State of Colorado. This means that every financial gift to Prodigy over $250 is eligible for a 25% tax credit on state income tax. In-kind gifts are eligible for a 12.5% tax credit. Both individuals and corporations can take advantage of tax credits.
EXAMPLE: If you donate $1,000, you will receive a 25% tax credit. Thus, your out-of-pocket donation is $750 while Prodigy Ventures receives $1,000.
How it works:
Make a gift to Prodigy via check or credit card over $250. Or, make an in-kind gift valued at that amount or more.
Prodigy will request either your: FEIN, the last four digits of your social security number, or *Colorado Account Number. (Please refer to the easy step-by-step instructions below).
Please note: we are not allowed to process your donation for Enterprise Zone tax credit eligibility purposes without your FEIN, social security number, or your Colorado account number.
Prodigy reports your donation to the State of Colorado.
You receive a form DR0075 which you will file with your tax return to claim your tax credit. This means that the taxpayer identification number you provide to Prodigy Ventures must match the taxpayer identification number used to file your taxes.
Taxpayers can use their Colorado Account Number in place of their social security number, if preferred.
You file your taxes with the form DR0075. In most cases, you must file state taxes electronically. There are some exceptions to this rule.
