Talk to your employer about receiving state tax credits for contributions to the JASP supporting our Japan in the Schools program. Tax credits can be more attractive than a standard charitable donation because they reduce your actual tax bill, dollar-for-dollar, not just your taxable income. Tax credits are utilized AFTER your tax liability is established.
EITC participation can offset Personal Income Tax of S-corporation shareholders, partnerships and limited liability company members. Whether you work for a major corporation or your own small business, "pass-through" entities can receive the credit.
