IS MY DONATION TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?

YES!

The Massachusetts Recreational Consumer Council is a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization.
Contributions to 501(c)(4) organizations generally are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. However, they may be deductible as trade or business expenses, if ordinary and necessary in the conduct of the taxpayer’s business. Therefore, any contributions received could be considered as ordinary and necessary expenses in the taxpayer’s business (i.e. advertising, professional fees, R&D, etc.)
Although donations are not “charitable contributions”, they can still be business expenses reducing taxable income, which is essentially the same effect.

YOUR VOTE LEGALIZED THIS INDUSTRY! WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE, DO YOU? 


A CLEAN SAFE CANNABIS INDUSTRY

The Massachusetts recreational cannabis industry has the ability to create jobs, provide consumers with better choice, enable a competitive market that will minimize illicit activity, and avoid disparate impacts on vulnerable communities.

Your vote legalized this industry. Help us keep the Massachusetts cannabis industry safe and equitable.  

JOIN THE MOVEMENT!
There is no better investment in the cannabis industry than to support the movement for economic and social justice through:
  • Advocating for the consumer interests on a state and municipal level;
  • Providing educational trainings and workshops to municipalities and the state;
  • Mobilizing constituents to lobby for equity on a state and municipal level;
  • Sharing cooperative models and best practices to community members and stakeholders.
We appreciate you. We've been working on this since the beginning of legalization Dec 15, 2016. Our goal: a flourishing cannabis industry formed through local economy and equitable free market practices. Help make it happen :)
