The March 2020 “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act” or the “CARES Act” stimulus bill includes changes related to charitable giving and may provide some tax benefits related to your donations to the WLA starting in 2020. For example, if you do not itemize your deductions, you can deduct up to $300 donated to qualified charitable organizations (excluding donor advised charitable funds) from your income, thus reducing your adjusted gross income by that same amount. More can be found in section 2204 of the CARES Act and should be reviewed with your tax attorney.

Membership fees are $40 per person ($75 for a family of two) for Watchic Lake property owners  More detail on the fees and associated voting rights can be found in the membership form
