How can I claim a tax deduction?

Members can declare an 80 percent tax deduction credit for whatever amount they pay during that calendar year. For example, if you make a total of $55 in payments in 2010 and a total of $495 in payments in 2011, then 80 percent of $55 is tax deductible for 2010, and 80 percent of $495 is tax deductible for 2011. The person who pays for the membership can declare the 80 percent tax-deductible credit.
