2.  Once you submit your online application, the MS DOR will send you a letter letting you know whether or not your application has been approved, usually within 10 days.   If approved, your approval letter will provide you with a confirmation number and a letter ID number.  These numbers are very important to keep for your tax records.  Please keep these numbers in a safe place.


3.  Make your donation to The Baptist Children’s Village.


4.  The BCV will mail you a Proof of Donation letter.  If you would like us to email your Proof of Donation letter to you, please provide written instructions with your donation and be sure to include your email address  


5. Once you receive your Proof of Donation letter from The Baptist Children’s Village, you need to submit it to the MS DOR.  Go to the MS DOR website - - or click here,  and upload it by clicking under Upload Documents and then Upload Requested Documentation.  You will need your letter ID number for this.  You may also simply mail your Proof of Donation (BCV receipt letter) to the MS Department of Revenue, P.O. Box 22828, Jackson, MS 39225.  You may also call us for assistance.  Dial 601.922.2242 and simply ask for help with a tax credit gift.


6.  Always talk to your tax advisor before making any decisions regarding your tax liability.  Please let your tax advisor know you are interested in taking advantage of the tax credit allowed by the Children’s Promise Act Eligible Transitional Home Organization Act §27-7-22.39 of the Mississippi Code Annotated.
