Give to Wildlife with Nongame Tax Checkoff
With tax season here, remember the Nongame Tax Checkoff on your Colorado state income tax returns. This is an easy way to give to Colorado's wildlife that are not hunted, fished or trapped: just check the box. Near the end of the 1996 tax form is a line for Coloradans to donate part of their tax refund or to include a donation with their tax payment for Colorado's wildlife.
The Division of Wildlife receives no state tax money. It relies on hunting and fishing licenses for most of its funds. Donations from the checkoff fund go to the nongame program. In 1996, taxpayers donated more than $300,000 this way.
Bald eagles, river otters, native fish and boreal toads and other species have benefitted from the checkoff. Please help Colorado's wildlife by giving a little on your 1996 return.
