Once the application is returned to the Coalition Life office, it may spend 1–2 weeks in internal processing. Then it is sent to the state government. It may take 45–90 days for the state to send the tax credit information to you. We would encourage you to be prompt about returning your tax credit application to the Coalition because your application must be submitted no later than 12 months after your donation. Also note, the State gets a large amount of traffic right before tax season (February–April), and it may take them longer than 45 days to process your application.
