Assembly Approves DeAngelo, Quijano, Andrzejczak & Wilson Bill to Establish Fund for Veterans Organizations
Legislation Would Allow Donations through Gross Income Tax Returns(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Wayne P. DeAngelo, Annette Quijano, Sgt. Robert Andrzejczak and Whip Wilson to allow New Jersey taxpayers to make donations to nonprofit veterans' organizations via their gross income tax returns was recently approved by the full Assembly, 77-0.
The bill (A-2313) would establish the Fund for the Support of New Jersey Nonprofit Veterans Organizations, to which taxpayers may indicate they would like to donate on their tax returns. An annual grant program drawing from contributions to the fund would assist private nonprofit veterans organizations in providing programs and services for veterans. Many such organizations have experienced financial hardship due to the recent economic downturn.
"Organizations like the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion and the Marine Corps League are sources of support and community for veterans in New Jersey," said DeAngelo (D-Mercer/Middlesex). "With this bill, we show our appreciation for those who have given so much for the sake of the people of this state and this nation."
