Tsunami relief giving in January counts toward '04 tax deduction

From Today's NYT, Contributions: Giving for a Cause, and That Cause Only
January 5, 2005

"On Tuesday, the Senate Finance Committee proposed that
Congress approve a plan to allow taxpayers to claim a
deduction in 2004 for cash gifts to tsunami relief efforts
made through Jan. 31, 2005, in part to help support the
efforts of former Presidents George H. W. Bush and Bill
Clinton to stimulate private giving."
