Donate to the National MS Society on your Income Tax Return
January 23, 2014
On your tax return, make your mark to help create a world free of MS!
This year, people in Louisiana can make a mark to create a world free of MS. While doing your 2013 income taxes, please simply check a box on line 40 of your state tax return form to make a charitable contribution to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. You can choose to donate back a portion of your expected refund, or you can make an additional donation if you owe taxes. Each contribution will go directly toward MS research, programs and services that support thousands of individuals living with MS. A small mark will make a big difference in the movement toward a world free of MS.
Please talk to your tax preparer for more information, or contact the National Multiple Sclerosis Society at 1-800-344-4867, option 1.
About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.
