Recognition Dutch tax authorities for Dutch Tangoweek Foundation
Dancers and music lovers who love tango, are now supported by the tax authorities. The foundation Dutch International Tango Week received a status as General Benefit Institution (ANBI). Due to this recognition donations are up to 150% tax deductible. Secretary Frank Perquin is proud of the recognition: ,,This recognition Dutch tax authorities is proof that we as a foundation are financially transparent and contribute to a broader appreciation of the Argentine Tango in the Netherlands. “
The Dutch International Tangoweek foundation is the first tango-organization in the Netherlands that acquires ANBI status. To qualify, the organization must meet a number of strict criteria: ,, The board may not receive payment for its work and there must be transparency in financial reporting”, Perquin explains. ,, With the financial resources at our disposal, we will support inspiring and beautiful tango initiatives. ”
The board of the Dutch Tango Week is convinced that recognition contributes to find funding for events and activities. ,,The deduction applies to both private individuals and companies. A donation of 100 euros actually costs only about 35 euros”. On the Tangoweek website is explained how tango lovers are eligible for tax reduction.
