Check-Off for Wildlife when doing S.C. taxes
By South Carolina DNR
Published: January 25, 2010
Tax time is the perfect time to help protect South Carolina’s animal and plant species by giving to the Endangered Wildlife Fund.
The Endangered Wildlife Fund, or “Check-Off for Wildlife Fund,” is the foundation of support for threatened and endangered wildlife in South Carolina. The Fund enables the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to better protect threatened and endangered wildlife, which in turn strengthens the environment for all species.
Look for line 27 on the long form (SC1040) or line 13 on the short form (SC1040A) of the S.C. Department of Revenue Individual Tax Return form, then complete and submit Form I-330. Find out more at: http://www.sctax.org/Forms+and+Instructions/default.htm
What do you get?
* A future for South Carolina’s endangered wildlife.
* Protection for South Carolina’s unique natural areas.
* A break on next year’s state and federal income taxes.
What success has this program shown? Thanks to your generous support, the number of bald eagles in South Carolina has increased from 13 to 237 nesting pairs. With the success here and in other states the bald eagle has been removed from the federal endangered species list. However, many more wildlife species are threatened, or may become so, in our lifetime.
South Carolina’s Endangered Wildlife Program depends heavily on public support. Please remember to “Check-Off” on your South Carolina State Income Tax forms.
South Carolina’s natural resources are essential for economic development and contribute nearly $30 billion and 230,000 jobs to the state’s economy. Find out why “Life’s Better Outdoors” at: http://www.dnr.sc.gov/green/index.html.
