A. Every individual who files an individual income tax return for the current tax year and who is entitled to a refund may designate on his current year return that all or any portion of the total amount of the refund to which he is entitled shall be donated to the American Red Cross in lieu of that amount being paid to him as a refund. In this case the refund shall be reduced by the amount so designated. The designation shall be made at the time of filing the current year tax return and shall be made upon the income tax return form as prescribed by the secretary of the Department of Revenue. Donated monies shall be administered by the secretary and distributed to the American Red Cross in accordance with the provisions of R.S. 47:120.37. No donation made under the provisions of this Subpart shall be invalid for want of an authentic act.

The form and content of the report shall be prescribed by the chairman of the committee, but shall at a minimum contain a detailed explanation of the revenues and expenditures, as well as a description of the organization's activities.
