NH Reps Show Support for Nonprofit Sector, But Tax Extenders Bill Falls Short

Despite affirmative votes from NH’s Congresswomen Carol Shea-Porter and Annie Kuster, the Supporting America’s Charities Act fell short of the ⅔ majority needed for passage in the House. The Senate is expected to pass the House’s short-term tax-extenders bill this week before adjourning.

The retroactive approach to this year’s tax-extenders bill provides only 3 weeks of charitable giving incentives, undermining donations to the charitable nonprofit sector through food, conservation easements and IRA accounts.

“We are grateful for the support of Representatives Shea-Porter and Kuster and we are impressed with the stellar advocacy from the NH nonprofit community,” said Mary Ellen Jackson, Executive Director of the NH Center for Nonprofits. “We look forward to sustaining and building our collective advocacy and working with our entire delegation in the next Congress to make these charitable giving incentives permanent.”
