To apply for the credit you must be an administrator (My DOR user type) of an excise tax account. The online application becomes available at 8 a.m. PST on the second Monday in January of each year. The application is first-come, first-serve. If the statewide cap has not been met by April 1 of each year, eligible Main Street Organizations may receive additional contributions. The online application will be updated at that time.
Once the application is complete you’ll receive a confirmation. You must then make the approved contribution(s) by Nov. 15 of the same year. Once the contribution is verified by the department, you will be granted a tax credit to use the following calendar year.
