If the AssociatednPress is beginning to learn what wenhave known for so long, then the futurenis ours.nCharity and TaxesnPresident Reagan has mystified somensegments of the press by calling for an increasenin the charitable spirit among thenAmerican people, yet providing evidencenon his tax returns of less than generousnlevels of personal contributions toncharitable causes. Although the Presidentnasserts that he believes in tithingnand that his conscience is clear, inquisitivenreporters demand to know the identitynof the beneficiaries of his gifts.nThe President, apparently, is too politena man to stare down someone likenMary McGrory and retort, “Why wouldnyou be so mde as to seek to embarrassnthose whom I chose to help?” before remindingnher that even Presidents retainnsome privacy while serving in public life.nWorse, many of the President’s supportersnappear defensive about this matter,nbelieving that the tax returns lend somenvalidity to the charges.nWhat the critics appear to have forgotten,nand the Internal Revenue Servicenmight be very quick to remind them, isnthat the tax codes were written to includenmany forms of human need, but werennever intended to be comprehensive.nWhen people require assistance, somenfolks respond before the appropriatenclearances are provided under the relevantnsections of the tax codes. True charitynis a matter between those who give.nthose who receive and the SupremenJudgeof the World.nOne finds a certain irony in the situationnthat enables those who accuse PresidentnReagan of a lack of compassion tonlimit their notion of charity to guidelinesnprovided by the IRS.
