Contribute to Wildlife on Your Montana Tax Form!

When filing out your Montana tax form this year, think “wildlife” by donating to the Nongame Wildlife Program, found on line 18a (short (EZ) form) or 69a (long form). If your taxes are prepared, tell your accountant that you want to donate to wildlife! Your contributions are tax deductible on next year’s return. Look for the soaring Bald Eagle in the instruction booklet.

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks uses the money raised through the check-off to support programs that benefit nongame animals. What are Montana’s nongame wildlife species? They include eagles, hawks, flying squirrels, loons, and songbirds. Bluebirds benefit from this program. So do Osprey and the rare spotted frog. In fact, Montana has more than 500 species of “nongame” animals that benefit from public support each year at tax time.

Since 1983, the check-off has contributed over $27,000 annually ($870,506 total) to this important wildlife program. Montana Audubon is responsible for securing the nongame wildlife check-off—it was the first legislation we passed at the Montana Legislature.

Please remember to contribute to the Nongame Wildlife Program when you file your tax return this year! Your donation provides critical support for these wildlife programs.
