RALEIGH, N.C. (April 5, 2011) — With Tax Day approaching on April 17, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is reminding taxpayers to help keep North Carolina wild when completing a N.C. State Income tax form this year.
Whether you love to hunt, fish, photograph wildlife, or watch birds in your own backyard, you can help conserve the state’s wildlife and their habitats by making a donation on line 28 of the state tax form.
“When you make a donation to the Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Fund through line 28 on the tax form, we call it a ‘tax check-off donation,’” said Chris McGrath, the Commission’s Wildlife Diversity Program coordinator. “That’s because the old tax form literally used to have a box that you would check to help us conserve wildlife. The check box is gone, but the need is greater than ever.”
Songbirds, fish, bats, salamanders, frogs and turtles all benefit from
