At the July 16 village of Mamaroneck Board of Trustee’s meeting, Mayor Tom Murphy explained why the Harbor Island International Beer Festival has been cancelled for this year.
Half Time Beverage, the beer superstore behind the festival, has stated that it is taking the time to focus on its microbrewery collaboration with Decadent Ales and is already planning for the 2019 beer fest.
According to a recent letter, the Mamaroneck school district announced that it will not establish a charitable fund at this time, due to New York state Department of Taxation and Finance regulations.
The department released the acknowledgement form for charitable funds which contained the words, “no goods or services were provided in exchange for this donation.” The school district consulted with its legal counsel, and the opinion is that the IRS will not treat contributions to a charitable fund as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes.
The charitable fund could have offered district taxpayers a reduction on a tax liability of up to 95 percent of the donated amount.
