Senator Curren Price was responsible for authoring SB 1076 that include the "Arts Council Fund" as a "Voluntary Contribution" option for state tax filers. The FTB's 2011 tax return forms allows California taxpayers to contribute part of their personal income tax refund to the California Arts Council and its arts programs for children and communities. Individuals may make tax-deductible contributions in amounts of $1 or more. Funds will be used to advance the arts and arts education, with no funding going to administrative expenses.
