Have you done your taxes yet? If not, don’t forget – you can show your Genuine Jersey Pride and support the Home Team by making a donation to Special Olympics New Jersey on your New Jersey tax return (NJ-1040).
SONJ will field a “Home Team” of 265 athletes at the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games, which will be held here in New Jersey June 14-21, 2014. This is your opportunity to support local athletes with intellectual disabilities who will compete at these USA Games.
All you have to do is include a contribution on LINE 64 of your NJ tax returns to the “2014 Special Olympics New Jersey Home Team Fund.” Be sure to use CODE 15 to designate your contribution to SONJ.
It’s so easy…here are step-by-step instructions:
Step 1 – Look on Page 3 of your NJ-1040 form (or online). Line 64 allows you to check off an amount for “Other Designated Contribution.” Check off $10, $20 or Other.
Step 2 – In the boxes to the right, write in the number 15. That is the code for the Home Team Fund.
Step 3 – Write in the amount of your full contribution in the boxes on the far right.
