You can claim a credit for contributions made to the Innovative Educational program. The amount of the credit allowed is equal to the amount of the donation, not to exceed $150. If you file a joint tax return, each taxpayer can receive a credit up to $150.
To qualify for the credit, you must preapprove your donation at the Education Donations Portal . Once your donation is preapproved, you will receive a confirmation code that you must keep in your records.
Note: You cannot claim this credit if you deducted your contribution from your Montana taxable income.
