Did you know that you can donate to LMSA and receive 75% of your donation back as a tax credit on your B&O taxes next year? Your donation will stay right here in Langley, supporting all the outstanding projects LMSA manages—from edible gardens to historic preservation. Your donations also fund remarkable events throughout the year starting with Sea Float Scramble in January, wrapping up with Deck the Doors in December—and several more in between.
Per the Washington State Department of Archaeology & Historic Preservation, the Main Street tax credit incentive program provides a Business & Occupation (B&O) or Public Utility tax (PUT) credit for private contributions given to eligible downtown organizations. Once your business’ donation request is approved by the Department of Revenue, you are eligible for a tax credit worth 75% of the contribution to your downtown revitalization organization. What other program essentially lets you self-direct your business taxes? In addition, because LMSA is a 501c3, you may be eligible for a federal income tax deduction for your charitable contribution.
We encourage you to take advantage of the program by pledging your donation by March 15 each year. Pledges can begin the second Monday of the new year. Your donation must be received by Nov 15.
