Organ Donation Checkoff Proposed For Tax Forms

Michigan’s secretary of state wants to make organ donation easier by adding a checkoff box on annual tax forms.

Terri Lynn Land says the box would be similar to the current section of the tax form that asks filers if they want part of their taxes to go to the State Campaign Fund.

Tax filers would have the option of marking the box which allows their names to be added to Michigan’s Organ Donor Registry.

Land says the proposal allows for a convenient way for organ donors to sign up and allows every Michigan taxpayer to be reached “at virtually no cost” during current lean fiscal times. Her proposal has to go before the state Legislature.
