Attention, North Dakota taxpayers!

Don’t forget about our state’s generous charitable tax credit. North Dakota offers a 40% state income tax credit for taxpayers making gifts of $5,000 or more to permanent charitable endowments in the state. IRA rollover gifts up to $25,000 per person and $50,000 per couple, per year, qualify for the tax credit.


To make sure your tax-deductible gift counts toward your 2021 taxes, please give before midnight on Dec. 31, 2021. If you have questions about giving, please contact our office
