Charitable Deduction Information
IRS Charitable Deductions
The tax code in the United States contains many provisions to promote certain behavior. One area of behavior is the promotion of donating to charities through IRS charitable deductions.
In the rush to get tax returns prepared and filed, many people absentmindedly forget to include deductions for contributions to charities. If you itemize deductions on your tax return, this can be an expensive omission.
Pursuant to relevant provisions of the tax code, you can take significant deductions if you donate money or goods to a qualified charity. A qualified charity is one that is registered with the IRS as a 501c3 entity. The 501 designation refers to the relevant section of the tax code.

For instance, many charitable groups will hold auctions to raise money. If your winning bid for a two night hotel stay is $800, you can claim a deduction for the bid amount minus the normal cost. You cannot just write off $800.
4. In general, donations of stock or property should assigned the fair market value, not an arbitrary figure based ...
