|Subject:||Tax Refunds to Certain Organizations|
|In the near future, I plan on introducing legislation that will continue Pennsylvania’s current provisions allowing an individual to donate all or a portion of their tax refund to certain organizations.
Currently, Pennsylvania has seven tax check-offs that allow individuals to donate a portion of their tax refund to certain organizations and causes during tax time (i.e. Red Cross, Diabetes Research Fund, etc.). Three of these check-offs are scheduled to sunset at the end of 2017:
According to the Department of Revenue, from 2011-2015, the above funds have received donations from this check-off totaling $449,783.86, $110,803.86 and $664,857.22, respectively. This bill would remove these sunsets completely.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important piece of legislation.
Introduced as SB757
