Tax Return CheckOff to Help Find Cure for Breast Cancer

New York State’s income tax form includes a checkoff box that allows both corporate and individual taxpayers to donate money to help find a cure for breast cancer. To date, more than 329,000 tax filers have donated to the fund, 100% of which goes directly to breast cancer research and education. The checkoff, or write-in line, as it appears on the New York State income tax return, deducts donations from taxpayers’ refunds or adds them to the tax owed. The state matches all donations on a dollar-for-dollar basis.

The New York State Health Depart-ment asks CPA firms to remind taxpayers of the checkoff. More information is available from the New York State Department of Health at (518) 408-1440.
