TRENTON – Legislation that would create new funds to benefit the New Jersey Red Cross, cancer research, active duty soldiers and the New Jersey Boys and Girls Clubs through voluntary contributions on the state’s corporate and personal income tax returns is moving forward.
Under the bills, taxpayers would have the option to contribute to any of these new funds through a check-off box to be included on New Jersey’s corporate and personal income tax returns each year.
All four bills were recently unanimously released from the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
“I am confident that New Jerseyans will be generous enough to donate a few dollars here or there to help these families,” said Assemblyman Craig J. Coughlin (D-Middlesex). “This bill would make it easy to do just that. And that’s a good thing for everyone involved.”
