Heads to the Senate Floor

Rancho Cordova – This week, Assemblyman Ken Cooley’s AB 924 to re-establish the State Children’s Trust Fund as a donation option on state income tax forms heads to the Senate Floor.  AB 924 will reinstate the State tax form check-off box as a donation option, ensuring that the Fund will continue to support innovative and effective child abuse prevention programs across the state.

Currently, California taxpayers have the opportunity to pledge a portion of their expected tax return to charitable funds when filing their taxes. Each charitable fund’s listed check-off box location on the tax form is tied to a minimum contribution level adjusted annually for inflation. Failure of any tax check-off to meet the minimum contribution level results in that fund being repealed.
