“Make Your Charity Donations Count Now.” – End Of Tax Year 2009!

Save $ In Taxes & NAHA Today by Making an IRS Tax Deductible Donations By Today, Dec. 31st 2009.

Here are some simple money-saving tips why Charities like NAHA can you help you, by helping us.

We hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday season this year! NAHA was able to deliver Food, clothing, and living-supplies this holiday to all 4 Reservations we serve. Thank you to everyone for helping NAHA care for the Native American families that are in dire need of your’s and our help. NAHA is still in dire need of charity donations this year, to help meet our goals to feed, clothe, supply medicine, provide backpacks, school supplies and more to families that just cannot provide themselves the help that they so desperately need. Today is the last day of the Tax Year 2009, and we would like to provide you some TAX-SAVING ideas why charities like ours can use your help, and why donating to a 4-Star Charity (501(c)(3)
can benefit your wallet.

Both 2008 and 2009 have been very hard years for all charities, including NAHA. At the same time that more and more individuals are seeking charitable help for the first time. Let’s face it; even those of us with jobs have found ourselves scrimping more, perhaps running out of money at the end of the month, or cutting back on luxury items that used to be a mainstay in our households. Maybe this year there has been a salary freeze at your job, or you will not be receiving a bonus that you counted on.

Basically, there are 3 reasons to give to NAHA: The first is because you would like a tax break. Why give Uncle Sam money when you could instead give some of that money to a charity that supports or helps a cause that is worthy, and helps children and families in need? The second is because you genuinely want to help out our cause. Either way will yield you a tax savings, and help the growing deficit many charities are facing. The third reason is because we need your help, sometimes just asking for your help is all it takes, and we know how hard it is for the families that have nothing, and know that even $5.00 will make a difference to a child who doesn’t know when they will eat their next meal.

Figuring out your tax savings is simple. Find out what your income tax bracket is for 2009. Each dollar that you contribute (either in cash or in market value of goods donated) will yield you a tax savings of your income tax bracket. For example, if you are in the 25% income tax bracket, then your tax savings is 25% of your contribution amount (for $100, that would be $25 in tax savings).

Timing: Deadline is December 31, 2009

Tax deductions may be made in the tax year that the actual money or goods were donated. So you have until December 31, 2009 to take advantage of IRS tax deductions for this year. If you want to donate money, but do not have it right now, then you can charge that money on your credit card, and you can still take the donated money as a tax contribution in this year.
