LINCOLN – There still is time for Nebraskans to contribute to wildlife and habitat conservation.
Line 42 on 2015 state income tax Form 1040N allows individuals to donate all or a part of their tax refund to the Nebraska Wildlife Conservation Fund, which focuses on saving Nebraska’s wildlife and wild places.
The tax check-off is an important funding source for implementation of Nebraska’s Natural Legacy Project. This plan was developed to conserve wildlife before they become rare and more costly to protect.
For taxpayers not entitled to a state tax refund, contributions can be made via NebraskaWildlifeFund.org or by mail to: The Wildlife Conservation Fund, Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, P.O. Box 30370, Lincoln, NE 68503-0370.
