Income tax incentives
The fund is designated by the Minister of Finance as a specific donation subject to donation deductions under the Income Tax Act.
In order to apply for the deduction, you must file a final tax return with the local tax office along with the " Donation Receipt" issued by the University.
Amount to be reduced
from income for tax cal-culation
|If your donation for the year exceeds 2,000 yen, you can deduct up to 40% of your annual income by filing a tax return.|
Study Support Program Fund
In addition to the regular income tax deduction, the School Support Project Fund, one of the use-specific projects, offers the option of a "tax deduction," which provides a larger tax reduction for small donations.
Amount to be reduced
from the tax amount
Tax deduction directly deducts a designated percentage of the donation amount from your income tax.
(e.g., If a person with an annual income of 5 million yen and an income tax rate of 20% donates 10,000 yen)
Amount to be reduced from the tax amount-> 40% of (10,000 yen - 2,000 yen) = 3,200 yen
Amount to be reduced from the income for tax calculation -> 20% of (10,000 yen - 2,000 yen) = 1,600 yen
In the above examples, if “reduced from tax amount” is selected, the tax deduction amount is doubled.
Note: Additional prefectural and municipal benefits are available for residents of Fukuoka Prefecture.
Corporations and Organizations
Donations to the Kyushu University Fund from corporations and organizations are 100% tax-deductible in the applicable year.
