Support The Artist Deduction Bill (S.548)

This artist deduction bill (S.548) would give artists the right to deduct the fair market value of their work when donating it to a charity. We artists are always asked to donate work to charitable causes for fundraising purposes but when our work is auctioned, the buyer gets the benefit of being allowed to deduct their contribution above the market value, whereas the contributing artists and artisans can only deduct the amount of the material costs of creating their work (the cost of paint, canvas, clay, paper...)
This bill is non-partisan and fair. Please click on this link and simply by typing in your zipcode a letter of support will be sent to your particular senators and congressmen.
