If you are filing a return which requires one or more Montana forms to be attached, you can still file electronically. Do not mail a paper copy of your Montana income tax return or accompanying attachments. Maintain a complete copy of your return and attachments for future reference. The department will contact you if a paper copy of your return or attachments is needed.
College Contribution Credit
You may take a credit for deductible contributions made during the tax year to the general endowment funds of the Montana university system foundations or to the general endowment funds of a private Montana college or its foundation. The credit is 10% of the contribution with a maximum of $500 and is non-refundable. The college must offer a baccalaureate degree level education program. The contribution may also be claimed as an itemized deduction on Form 2A, subject to the normal limitations.
