How may donations to MSMAP be “tax-deductible”?
MSMAP is an organization making a charitable contribution to the community. Ultimately, MSMAP is about helping our community become a better place.
This isn’t empty talk. MSMAP is recognized by both the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the State of California as a charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. tax code . This IRS recognition makes contributions to public charities such as MSMAP an attractive strategy for reducing taxes because contributions to MSMAP may be tax-deductible. This is correct: donations to MSMAP may be deducted from your tax returns for that tax year depending upon your personal tax situation.
Additionally, MSMAP is a registered charity with the California Attorney General’s office.
