"Check-Off" for a Good Cause
As you complete your individual income tax return, please remember the "check-off" programs. You can contribute any amount to any of these four programs. Your contribution will increase the amount you owe or reduce the amount of your refund.
Nongame Wildlife Program
Contributions are used to ensure the well-being of Montana's watchable wildlife species, such as eagles, herons, bluebirds, great horned owls, loons, chipmunks, pikas, flying squirrels and painted turtles.
Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Program
Contributions fund services and activities related to the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Note: If you enclose a separate check with your timely filed return you are allowed to take an itemized deduction for the amount of the contribution on the return you are filing with the contribution.
Agriculture in Montana Schools Program
Contributions fund the development and presentation of educational programs. This program ensures Montana's young people have a better understanding of agriculture in our state and how it relates to the rest of the world.
Montana Military Family Relief Fund
Contributions to this program help provide funding for grants that aid Montana families in defraying the costs of food, housing, utilities, medical services and other expenses when a wage earner has been called to active military duty.
