Charitable contributions made to 501(c)(3) organizations by individuals are tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law. Seeing and Believing (SAB) has submitted an application to qualify for 501(c)(3) status, but has not yet received confirmation of approval. When the IRS approves a timely filed exemption application, exempt status is recognized back to the date the organization was created. If the organization ultimately qualifies for exemption for the period in which the contribution is made, the contribution will be tax-deductible by the donor.* Although SAB cannot guarantee approval, we anticipate confirmation of our status in 2014 and plan to provide an annual summary of contributions to all donors for tax purposes.
