Do you like this story?
It's time to take some action. I like many, get bogged down even thinking of politics, though I do enjoy a good debate. Anaba pointed me to the Americans for the Arts organizations web site, an advocacy group for artists. They are currently urging that we contact our congressmen and senators pleading them to back a new bill coming up that will allow artists to finally claim the fair market value of their art works that they donate to auctions and non-profits. Currently, for those who are not aware of the current tax laws, artists can only claim the cost of their materials only. This bill is of great value for all artists and should be backed by every reader of On the Cusp. Follow this link to to their site where they have made contacting them as simple as filling out a short form and hitting the send button. All of this takes no longer than 2 minutes at most. Get over there and help support this bill.
