How it Works:
Instead of paying taxes to the State of Missouri, you make a charitable gift to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield, MO. In return, the State of Missouri awards YOP credit coupons that reduce your state taxes. Individuals are allowed to use up to $200,000 in YOP credit coupons per year! You may also realize a charitable deduction on your federal income taxes as well.
Redirecting your taxes through the Missouri YOP program helps to assure adequate programs and educational facilities will be available for children in need. YOP credits cost nothing, but mean everything! Check out how the Missouri State YOP Tax Credit Program can benefit you and the children right here in the Ozarks!
