TAX Day – Ugh!!
I recently read where we were working Jan. 1 through June 30th of each year, just to pay all of our taxes. In Canada, add another month or two. After that, you keep all you make. Prior to that, 100% goes to the government in some form or fashion to pay for some kind of government worker, work program, social program, defense, project, health care, common good, common projects, etc. Whatever you want to call it, April 17th is TAX day; the deadline for filing your federal income taxes in the U.S.A. Canadians have to file by April 30th. Why April?
So, in celebration of this special time of year, let’s talk TAX relief. If you received last month’s letter from me, you will recall our goal of trying to raise $5,000.00 for Fairfax Children’s Hospital, the areas #1 Not for Profit Hospital for Young People. But – we need your help and I believe you can benefit from the TAX relief as well.
Just down the street from where I am typing this, Fairfax Children’s Hospital has a full house of kids fighting for their lives. For them and their parents’ taxes are not “top of mind”, health is. Living is. Surviving is. As you may have heard, The Children’s Hospital is front and center in the fight against nasty diseases that destroy or cut short the lives of Children. Things like Cancer, Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Leukemia, as well as leading the way in early diagnosis of autism and miracle working around spinal cord injuries. We are thankful to have such a wonderful facility close by, doing such great work to help heal and save young people.
So even though we are trying to figure out how much we owe the tax man, many are simply hoping they can be here to actually pay taxes. This is why we here at CAP Real Estate, LLC have resolved to do what we can to help.
For every house we sell this year, we are donating a portion of our income to Fairfax Children’s Hospital. Our goal, again, is to raise $5,000 to help them in their quest to Heal, Save, Cure and Comfort Children under their care.
This is where we need your help and how you can benefit at the same time…
Charitable contributions are tax deductible to a point. Rather than give your money to the government, you should consider making a donation to a charity. I believe it will somehow come back to you, well beyond a simple tax deduction. A core value at our company is “the size of the hole you give through is directly proportionate to the size of the hole you receive through.”
Either way, your referrals are in good hands and help us contribute to a good cause.
Life moves fast for some and we are eager to make the Home Selling and Buying experience a smooth rewarding one. Over the last two decades of helping thousands of families sell their home and/or buy another, we have met some wonderful, loving, caring people. People like you! So, your referrals, those you know considering a move, that we help – you can rest assured that not only will they get the award-winning service we are known for, but that a solid portion of the income we receive from the transaction will go toward a very worthy cause.
Your Referrals Really Do Help the Kids…
