Senator Schumer's Hunting Bill

on Monday, 24 June 2013.

Sen. Charles Schumer said today he plans to introduce legislation for a new federal tax deduction that will help feed the hungry, boost the economy and tackle the growing deer population at the same time. Schumer said his bipartisan bill would offer a tax deduction to hunters who donate their game, such as deer or wild turkey, to anti-hunger programs. The deduction would be for the cost of processing the venison or other game. Venison processors also would benefit from the legislation, which would make all processing income they receive from charities tax-exempt . Schumer said his bill also would help the Upstate economy, noting that New York already ranks fourth among all states for the economic impact of its hunting industry. He wants to introduce his bill before this fall.
