Fueling a tax discussion
Carbon offsets are a fantastic idea. But are they tax deductible or not?
According to the Native Energy FAQ page, (these are the guys that the OIA and a few other OR companies are partnering with) it sure seems like the whole thing is a write off, regardless of the fact that the organization is a for-profit entity. But, to be a prude about the whole thing, anytime it says "check with your accountant," it's probably a verrrry wise idea.
If you're feeling at all squirelly about the whole thing but still want to do your part, use CarbonFund.org instead. They're clearly a non-profit organization, which ensures full compliance with the tiny print that you'll find at the bottom of your audit subpoena.
