TAX Day – Ugh!!
I recently read somewhere that we are working Jan. 1 through August of each year, just to pay all of our taxes. After that, you keep all you make. Prior to that, 100% goes to the government in some form or fashion to pay for some kind of government worker, work program, social program, defense (We actually have one), government project, health care, common good, common bad, etc. Whatever you want to call it, April 30th is TAX day; That’s Right the deadline for filing your federal income taxes is April 30th. Why April?
So in celebration of this special time of year, let’s talk TAX relief. If you received last month’s letter from me, you will recall our goal of trying to raise $10,000.00 for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. But – we need your help and I believe you can benefit from the TAX relief as well.
Scattered across this vast country, The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation has a full house of mothers and children struggling to put their lives back together. For these families taxes are not “top of mind”...Recovering is... Surviving is. As you may have heard, the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is front and center in the fight against nasty domestic abuse and violence that destroys families. We are thankful to have such wonderful and compassionate people doing such great work to help families heal, and give many a shot at a normal life.So even though we are trying to figure out how much we owe the tax man, many are simply trying to survive. This is why at Jan’s Realty Team we have resolved to do what we can to help.
For every house we sell this year, we are donating a portion of our income to the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. Our goal, again, is to raise $10,000 to help them in their quest to Heal, Restore, and Nurture Families back to Health.
This is where we need your help and how you can benefit at the same time…
Charitable contributions are tax deductible to a point. Rather than give your money to the government, you should consider making a donation to a charity. If you like this idea, we will match your donation up to $250 if you decide the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is a good place to donate. Check with your CPA to verify the deduction allowed on your taxes before pursuing this avenue.
Either way, your referrals are in good hands and help us contribute to a good cause.
Life moves fast for some and we are eager to make the Home Selling and Home Buying experience a smooth and rewarding one. Over the last decade of helping thousands of families sell their home and/or buy another, I have met some wonderful, loving, and caring people. People like you! So with your referrals, those you know considering a move, you can rest assured that not only will they get the award winning service we are known for, but that a solid portion of the income will go toward an extremely worthy cause.
YOUR Referrals Really Do Help Families …
