So, have you filed your taxes yet? Mine are done and our refund is on its way. This year our tax situation was helped considerably by the addition of a happy, babbling, mess-making, little tax deduction. Donating to charity is another, much less sticky way of saving on your taxes. Here at the BBB, we often get questions from the public about whether or not contributions to a particular organization are tax deductible. A group may solicit for funds and state that it is a 'tax exempt' organization, but does that automatically mean that the money you give them can be taken as a tax deduction? The short answer is no. Donors need to be careful about the wording they read and hear in a solicitation.
