Help Special Olympics Athletes Get Ahead Again This Tax Season

CHECK THE BOX! to Contribute Portion of Tax Refund to SOKY

Check the Box!For the second year, you can help support Special Olympics Kentucky athletes using a portion of your State tax return. Al you have to do is enter the amount of your donation in the Special Olympics Kentucky box (number to be determined) on your state tax form. Your donation will be deducted from your state tax refund. The amount is up to you, from $1 to the full amount of your return.

All money contributed through the tax check off will help support Special Olympics Kentucky athletes statewide.

In its first year for the 2016 tax year, donors contributed more than $20,000 to Special Olympics Kentucky through the state tax return box, making this an important new source of funding to support our sports, health and community building activities.

The tax check box was approved for Special Olympics Kentucky during the 2015 Kentucky Legislative Session. The  Legislature passed House Bill 178, which added Special Olympics Kentucky as a Tax Check Off option on the state forms.

For more information about the tax check off or about how you can donate, contact Trish Mazzoni at 502-695-8222 or tmazzoni@soky.org or Mark Buerger at mbuerger@soky.org.
