I am afraid that in momentary lapse, I over emphasized an issue. As has been
stated by more than one writer, contributions to a Pack or Troop can be
deductible. Caution should be taken however, since, as has also been stated,
money for a boy is not deductible, but money for the program of Scouting is.
Thus buying yourself a Scouters uniform is deductible because it is to
benefit the program, but buying your sons is not because it benefits the boy.
Yours in Scouting,
