January kicks off with clean slates and resolutions and then before you know it the talk turns to taxes. While many of us do not look forward to the process, there is a silver lining in New York State this year. Taxpayers have an opportunity to support people living with lupus.
For ten years a coalition of lupus organizations and supporters have been advocating for support in Albany. As a result of these efforts the Lupus Education & Prevention Fund is now listed under Voluntary Contributions on the 2018 NYS Tax Return. Contributions to this fund will be used to support NYS lupus education, prevention and awareness program grants. We are proud to be working together with lupus leaders throughout the state and recognize the tireless efforts of Kathleen Arnsten, President and CEO of Lupus and Allied Diseases Association for her leadership.
If you are a New Yorker, please support people living with lupus by checking the Lupus Fund on your return. It is an option whether filing by paper, electronically or through your accountant. You can also help by spreading the word to your friends, family and colleagues who file a New York State Tax Return.
