What are the Nonprofit Private School Contribution Credits?

Tax credits are allowed for making charitable contributions to qualifying nonprofit private primary schools, high schools, and colleges located in North Dakota.

A separate credit is allowed for each of the three categories of school: primary school, high school, and college. A taxpayer can qualify for any or all three of the credits by making separate contributions to qualifying schools within one or more of the school categories. The maximum credit allowed in each school category is limited to $2,500 per tax year. If the allowable credit exceeds your tax liability, the excess is not allowed in any other tax year.
