South West Florida Horse Rescue, Inc. (SWFHR) is a Florida not for profit corporation created pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. This means that donors can contribute sums to the organization and deduct those contributions from their income taxes. It also means the organization does not have to pay its own income tax on any proceeds deriving from its activities.  It is important for each donor to get his or her own tax advice in determining precisely what benefit would apply to his or her particular tax situation, but the tax deduction of donations to SWFHR is equivalent to those same such applicable donations of other charitable institutions; such as the Goodwill  or United Way.
