LINCOLN, Neb. – Nebraskans receiving a tax refund this year have an opportunity to support wildlife and habitat conservation.
On Line 45 of the Nebraska state income tax form, individuals may donate all or part of their tax refund to the Nebraska Wildlife Conservation Fund, which helps the thousands of species in Nebraska that are not hunted or fished, particularly those that are rare, endangered or threatened.
Tax refund donations have benefited many species over the years, including river otters, monarch butterflies, swift fox, peregrine falcons and bald eagles. Donations are used to maintain and improve habitat for these and many other nongame animals, as well as to provide wildlife viewing and other educational opportunities for Nebraskans. Additional information is available online at NebraskaWildlifeFund.org.
For taxpayers not entitled to a state tax refund, contributions can be made online at NebraskaWildlifeFund.org or by mail to: Nebraska Wildlife Conservation Fund, Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, P.O. Box 30370, 2200 N. 33rd Street, Lincoln, NE 68503.
