New legislation will now allow New Jersey taxpayers to support veterans, members of the National Guard and their families by checking a box on their tax returns.
The News of Cumberland County reports the legislation will allow taxpayers to donate to a special fund called the “NJ National Guard State Family Readiness Council Fund.”
The bill was signed into law by Governor Christie Friday.
Sen. Jim Beach (D-Camden) and Sen. Jeff Van Drew (D-Cumberland), Cape May, Atlantic City) sponsored the legislation.
Sen. Van Drew told The News of Cumberland County the legislation was the “least we can do to honor our members’ service.”
