We're trying. The creation of the PALS website allows us to reduce our paper usage by making most items virtually accessible, however, we're still required to make paper-copies available. Additionally, while our forms are available online, we do still require them to be printed out and physically submitted...we're just not technologically advanced enough to do otherwise.
No, but it may qualify as tax deductible. The IRS Publication 78 Data List is a document published by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that lists organizations that qualify to receive tax-deductible contributions. Parent Action League for Students is on that list. For search and identification purposes our EIN is 45-0638536. PALS is coded as a public charity, or PC. As such, "in general, an individual who itemizes deductions may deduct contributions to PALS by up to 50% (60% for cash contributions) % of his or her adjusted gross income computed without regard to net operating loss carrybacks." What does that mean? Your guess is as good as ours...get a receipt, keep it, and consult with a tax professional!
