Artist Deduction Bill Ties Record Number of Cosponsors in House
Rep. Don Cazayoux (D-LA) has joined on as a cosponsor to H.R. 1524, bringing the total number of cosponsors in the House to 103. This ties the record number set in 2004. This bill supports individual artists by allowing them to take a fair-market value tax deduction for tangible works they donate to nonprofit collecting and educational organizations, and it benefits the public by giving them access to more art. Send a message to your members of Congress asking them to be a co-sponsor of this important bill, H.R. 1524 (House) and S. 548 (Senate).
