Green Your Taxes: Give to Charity

Giving money to charity Today is Tax Day, and we could all use a little help crunching those numbers. So this week’s tips are about how to find out if you can make your payment a little smaller by having gone a little greener. 

Tip #4: Make Donations

If you made plenty of charitable donations in 2009, you’re probably breathing a sigh of relief at how that generosity slashed your tax bill. Now we’re not saying that you should engage in philanthropy for selfish reasons, but hey, no one’s complaining about the deductions either. Were you paralyzed with sticker shock at what you had to pay the IRS today? Save yourself – and the planet – some grief next year by sponsoring a cause that’s dear to you. (May we suggest the Sierra Club Foundation?)

Tell us: To which nonprofits do you donate?
