Voluntary Income Tax Return Contributions – NJ 1040 Charitable Funds

The bill requires the Legislature to annually appropriate all monies deposited into the fund for distribution to Special Olympics New Jersey. The law took effect Nov. 8 and applies to taxable years beginning on or after Jan. 1, 2022.
