CHANGES IN TAX LAWS: On January 1, 2007 a new provision regarding cash contributions went into effect. The law states that individuals who want a tax deduction for cash contributions they make to tax-exempt organizations must prove their donation. Therefore, the organization that received the donation must provide a receipt for all cash donations regardless of the amount. Taxpayers who previously claimed a charitable deduction for estimated cash offerings to churches throughout the year will no longer be able to deduct their estimates. In order to provide you with a receipt at the end of the year, cash contributions must be made in an identifiable form. If you wish a receipt at the end of the year for your cash donations, please use the envelope system or put cash in an envelope with your name and address.
THE PARISH FINANCE BOARD has approved a change in the amount which qualifies a family for participating member status used to determine eligibility for reduced tuition rates at Christ the King School and Diocesan high schools, as well as for use of parish facilities. Beginning in 2008, this status is based on a minimum of $950 in annual offertory contributions. The $950 amount is not an absolute requirement; we ask that people give regularly in proportion to income to qualify.
