 There are two ways of deductions from income and tax credit and can choose either advantageous.

(i) Subtraction of income tax

 When individual performs contribution more than 2,000 yen for our foundation, (contribution amount of money -2000 yen) is subtracted from income. In addition, we include donation for other specific public interest increase corporations in contribution amount of money, and, as for the contribution amount of money targeted for subtraction, 40% considerable sum of gross income amount of money of donor is done with limit.
Note : Final income tax return of donor is necessary, and "donation certificate" which The Nihon Ki-in issued on report is necessary.

※ High income earner who is high in income tax rate has a bigger tax reduction effect to take tax rate after having performed deductions from income.

 When individual performs contribution more than 2,000 yen for our foundation, we subtract deduction that calculated contribution amount of money in the basics from the amount of a tax regardless of tax rate directly.
