Community Vitality Investment Act
Despite record numbers of Minnesotans playing raffles, bingo, pull tabs and other charitable games, charities are struggling to make donations because of an unfair tax structure. Unlike most individuals and for-profit businesses that receive some kind of tax benefit when a charitable donation is made, the more charities donate, the more they pay in state taxes.
The Community Vitality Act (S.F. 419/S.F. 1069 and H.F. 226) would achieve tax fairness by eliminating state taxes on the charitable contributions from qualified organizations operating charitable gaming. The bill has broad bipartisan support in both the house and the senate.
