No, although we haven't yet paid for labor at some point we hope to. Contrary to popular thought even if we were a non profit our fees still would not be tax deductible, because it is a good/service of equal value rather then getting a free gift like socks from a donation you give. Despite this we are pursuing avenues to work with nonprofits to help us grow and you can help by giving the gift of service to others- Thank you for your help, please contact us or see clients only page at the bottom to sign up.
