The state Game and Parks Commission is reminding Nebraskans that part of their tax refund can go toward wildlife and habitat conservation.
Commission members say the tax check-off on 2012 state income tax forms allows individuals to donate all or a part of their tax refund to the Wildlife Conservation Fund.
Kristal Stoner, the commission's wildlife diversity program manager, says the check-off is one of the main sources of state funding that protects and helps manage more than 95 percent of nongame fish and wildlife species in the state.
The check-off is on Line 42 of Nebraska state income tax forms. Donations can also be made online or by mail, to the Wildlife Conservation Fund in Lincoln.
