Donate Your Telephone Tax Refund to a Good Cause

refundsforgood.jpgHopefully by now you’ve taken my advice and claimed your telephone tax refund on this years’ tax return. If not, you can see my post here begging and pleading for you to do it. But why am I so insistent upon this?

The main reason is that the government takes enough of your money and wastes it away on $200 hammers – it’s your right to get some of that back!

But today I found another reason – to donate it to a good cause!

RefundsForGood.org explains, in great detail, the phone excise tax. There is even an interactive timeline where you can learn about the tax and how it came to become part of American history in 1898.

There are also step-by-step instructions on how to get your phone tax refund amount back using the standard exemption method, as well as via the full 41 month audit method.

But the best part of the website is your ability to donate your telephone tax refund to a number of different charitable organizations. The website hopes that some people, who are able to, will contribute their phone excise tax to one of the worthwhile non-profits on the portal.

The site is very well done, with celebrity endorsements on the site such as Martin Sheen, Larry Hagman (“JR”), Ed Begley Jr. and Nate Corddry (from the Daily Show) – along with 13 Nobel Peace Prize Laureates from the Dalai Lama to Bishop Tutu.

So if you’re feeling in a giving mood, please consider donating your telephone tax refund to a good cause!
