War Veterans Status—The Legion Act was signed into law by President Trump. We have evaluated the act and it is American Legion specific and, therefore does not change our tax status. 1. There are two veteran organizations filing a lawsuit to include all veteran organizations under this act so we are all treated equally when it comes to war time definitions 2. Due to the increase in standard deductions the War Veteran status will probably not affect many of us. Two years ago, 180 million taxpayers used the Form A for tax deductions but last year only 13 million used the itemized form.
