Tax Changes Charities

Some charitable organizations in Michigan have reported a decline in donations following tax changes that eliminated state credits for financial gifts to food banks, homeless shelters and certain nonprofits. Gov. Rick Snyder and the GOP-led Legislature made the changes to help balance the state's budget. In 2011, about 234,000 Michigan taxpayers claimed $19.5 million in tax credits through donations to homeless shelters and food banks.
