An Easy Way To Help Animals During Tax Time!
Passage of the Companion Animal Welfare Fund created a new, interest-bearing fund in the State Treasury that supports animal welfare organizations and rescue groups throughout Michigan. Michigan taxpayers can donate to the fund through Schedule 4642, a Michigan voluntary contribution tax form.
All donations will be distributed through grants to organizations throughout Michigan, providing financial support for spay/neuter and animal cruelty investigation programs.
All it takes is three simple steps:
- Obtain Schedule 4642, a voluntary contribution form, from your tax preparer, or download below.
- On the form, select Option 2 “Animal Welfare Fund” and designate an amount of your discretion to be donated. You can choose to designate a portion of your tax refund to the fund, or make a separate voluntary contribution.
- Attach Schedule 4642 to your individual tax return form.
