Article By Enness Sherlock

According to a Deseret News study of Internal Revenue tax data, Utahns "...give far more of their income to charity than any other Americans."

The article, in this morning's Deseret News, states "...Utahns reported providing $2.9 billion to charity in 2006, or 5 percent of their adjusted gross income."

Only five percent? Where's the OTHER five percent? Who's holding back?

Also, according to the article, "...while the LDS Church declined comment for this story, scholarly studies have long surmised that Utah's unusually high charitable giving is because of its high number of Mormons who live here."

Really? Who woulda thunk?
