DiNapoli Says Some Taxpayer Check Off Donations Not Used

Kristine Bellino, WIBX

New Yorkers have contributed more than $51 million to worthy causes through check-offs on their income tax returns, but where does that money go?

A new report from state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli found the funds often sit unused.

DiNapoli says more than $14 million has accumulated in six check-off funds, with nearly 90% of that for health related causes, including breast cancer and prostate cancer.

The comptroller has made several recommendations to improve the administration and accountability for dedicated tax check-off funds.

To read the full report, visit the comptroller’s website.
