Write Off Your Star Trek Book Collection…

High court gives science fiction society its seal of approval: The Baltimore Science Fiction Society got a court to award them tax-exempt status because their work is considered educational.

The Court of Appeals took account of the society’s annual young writer’s competition. In addition, the society holds writing workshops, has a library for its members and runs an annual convention where science fiction novelists and scientists discuss their work. Judge Alan Wilner, writing for the majority, wrote that those initiatives serve an educational purpose, making the society eligible for the tax exemption.
