Good News For Taxpayers

After the Tsunami and Hurricane Katrina, Congress passed special tax exemptions to encourage American taxpayers to give generously. Today, we're hearing that the House passed similar legislation (HR 4462) that would allow taxpayers to deduct their Haiti donations on their 2009 returns. What's the catch? You must donate before March 1, 2010.

If you want to take advantage of this tax benefit and you haven't yet donated to Haiti earthquake relief efforts, then go to our site now to access our list of charities providing aid.
