Intuit Offers Gateway to Online Charities
The spirit of the holiday season is alive and well at Intuit.
Users of TurboTax can click on a link included within the software program and be taken directly to the CharityGift online site. Direct donation to various charities, as well as the ability to honor someone by providing a donation, are available as options.
"We are pleased to offer consumers the opportunity to help themselves by helping others by contributing to the charity of their choice," says Bob Meighan, vice president of Intuit's Consumer Tax Group.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
