Charitable Contributions

Vermont taxpayers making donations to charitable organizations, including organizations working on flood relief, may be eligible for the Vermont Charitable Tax Credit. Vermont has a five percent (5%) personal income tax credit for eligible charitable contributions up to $20,000 available to all Vermont income tax filers, regardless of whether you itemize deductions. You can claim this credit on your 2023 Vermont personal income taxes when you file next year. When donating to a charitable organization, remember to ask the organization if your donation is tax deductible and keep a receipt.
