It's that time of year again - tax time! And this year, you can again turn tax time into dinner time through the Wisconsin Tax Check Off program. The program helps you easily donate a portion of your state tax refund to our network of regional food banks in Wisconsin.
It's really easy. If you use tax preparation software like TurboTax, an option to donate to local charities will come up toward the end of your state return. Simply select "Hunger Relief" or "Feeding America" and voila, you're done. TurboTax will even remember your donation for your charitable deduction next year!
If you are filling out the Wisconsin state tax return forms, you can find the option to donate on line 26 of the short form or line 25 on the long form.
Funds will be distributed between Feeding Wisconsin food banks by the percentage of the state that each one serves.
Your continued generous support helped to enable over 40 million meals throughout the state in 2015, including just over 11.1 million pounds of healthy and nutritious food fresh from our Wisconsin farms. For every dollar that you donate, our food banks can provide at least 5 meals to the families that visit local food programs.
