Q1. What kind of metropolis and districts does municipality become a target of contribution?

 In addition, sum of tax reduced based on net total of the donation is calculated when we contribute for the plural metropolis and districts, municipalities.

Q3. We want to contribute from the prefecture to the native place municipalities, is it possible?

A3.
 It is possible institutionally that prefecture residence contributes by own will for the municipalities of the prefecture.
 But originally hometown tax system is thinking that it is important that prefecture appeals to various places lived in in metropolises of the metropolitan area and Kansai zone for contribution when examination stands on what was done from critical mind whether few, cannot transfer source of tax revenue put in big city to district either against a backdrop of increasing city and local yield of taxes difference.
 In addition, we are not thinking that it is desirable at all because excessive donation acquisition competition that we spent administrative expense between the local governments of the prefecture on is hard to say that it is profit of the whole Kumamoto.

 In addition, "article of thanks" presenting does not present when contribution amounts of money to prefecture are more than 10,000 yen when we correspond toward prefecture residence.

Q4. When is it that tax is actually subtracted?

A4.
 In the case of residence tax, donation until from January 1, 2018 to December 31 is reduced than tax amount having you originally put about tax of 2019 to have you put after June, 2019.
 In addition, in the case of income tax, income tax of 2018 is reduced.
 Therefore, as for the tax credit of donation, residence tax for the next fiscal year and income tax of the age concerned will be subtracted each.

Q5. What kind of procedure is necessary to receive application of tax credit?

A5.
 We attach "donation receipt certificate" mailing from prefecture to receive reduction of both taxes of income tax and residence tax, and final income tax return of income tax is necessary in the nearest taxation office.
 At time of final income tax return, it is the mid-February and mid-March in average year, and there are necessary documents in the nearest taxation office. We can make again (distribution is the middle of January in average year.) on homepage of the National Tax Agency.
 In addition, final income tax return is possible by mail unless we bring report in the nearest taxation office.
 As it is informed municipality to live that we will do final income tax return by taxation office, it is not necessary to have you report to the municipalities some other time.

Q6. When I do not do final income tax return, what should I do?

A6.
 We can receive reduction of residence tax if we report residence tax for municipality of address place as of January 1 in the next year of age that paid donation. (as you should submit simple report in the case of office worker, pensioner, please use "donation tax credit report" mailing from prefecture.)
 But please be careful as this case, reduction of income tax are not received.
