SERVE Act of 2013
The SERVE Act of 2013 is a bill recently introduced to the US Congress
It is also known as the Supporting Emergency Volunteer Efforts Act of 2013.
If passed, this would allow Volunteer Firefighters and Emergency Responders to claim a $1,000 federal income tax credit for personal purchases related to volunteer efforts.
These are expenditures such as training clothes, equipment and gas for your personal vehicle.
This would go a long way toward saying THANKS to current volunteers. And it would help recruit new volunteers.
This bill has been endorsed by the National Volunteer Fire Council.
We're with you - we hope it passes too!
