Four Bills Would Enable Taxpayer Contributions to Cancer Research

WASHINGTON—House members have introduced four bills that would enable taxpayers to support cancer research: One bill would allow a check-off box on income tax forms to provide contributions to a new Breast and Prostate Cancer Research Fund. Two bills would permit taxpayers to designate part or all of their income tax refund to research, either through the National Institutes of Health or the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. The last bill would authorize a matching grants program to encourage states to sell special license plates to provide funds for breast cancer research.
