house Bill H.R. 1527

Extending the Deadline for Tax-Deductible Donations To The Families Of NYPD Detectives Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos

Argument in favor

This is a good way to encourage donations to the families of the fallen NYPD detectives, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, to be made as soon as possible. It also rewards those people for their support.

December 2014 was not enough time for some people to donate. Extending the time to April 15th, 2015 makes sense.

Yes, but for future references legislation should drafted that will fix the boundaries for such events in order to provide a uniform code of tax deductible applications.

I don't think it'd hurt anything to extend the time for donations.

Argument opposed

While this may encourage more people to help the fallen detectives families, there’s plenty of other fallen police officers, firefighters, and soldiers whose families won’t benefit from this legislation.

Why is the Congress of the United States micromanaging tax deductions? If it's going to apply to two individuals, let it apply to all cops who fall in the line of duty.

This legislation is too narrow, too specific and does little good.

One million in donations is plenty. I think more donations should be taxable.
