Powered by jforum tax help free The limits described in Limits on Deductions , later, apply. Powered by jforum tax help free The deduction is also limited to 25% of your adjusted gross income from Israeli sources. Powered by jforum tax help free Contributions You Can Deduct Generally, you can deduct contributions of money or property you make to, or for the use of, a qualified organization. Powered by jforum tax help free A contribution is “for the use of” a qualified organization when it is held in a legally enforceable trust for the qualified organization or in a similar legal arrangement. Powered by jforum tax help free The contributions must be made to a qualified organization and not set aside for use by a specific person. Powered by jforum tax help free If you give property to a qualified organization, you generally can deduct the fair market value of the property at the time of the contribution. Powered by jforum tax help free See Contributions of Property , later. Powered by jforum tax help free Your deduction for charitable contributions generally cannot be more than 50% of your adjusted gross income (AGI), but in some cases 20% and 30% limits may apply. Powered by jforum tax help free In addition, the total of your charitable contributions deduction and certain other itemized deductions may be limited. Powered by jforum tax help free See Limits on Deductions , later. Powered by jforum tax help free Table 1 in this publication gives examples of contributions you can and cannot deduct. Powered by jforum tax help free Contributions From Which You Benefit If you receive a benefit as a result of making a contribution to a qualified organization, you can deduct only the amount of your contribution that is more than the value of the benefit you receive. Powered by jforum tax help free Also see Contributions From Which You Benefit under Contributions You Cannot Deduct, later. Powered by jforum tax help free If you pay more than fair market value to a qualified organization for goods or services, the excess may be a charitable contribution. Powered by jforum tax help free For the excess amount to qualify, you must pay it with the intent to make a charitable contribution. Powered by jforum tax help free Example 1. Powered by jforum tax help free You pay $65 for a ticket to a dinner-dance at a church. Powered by jforum tax help free Your entire $65 payment goes to the church. Powered by jforum tax help free The ticket to the dinner-dance has a fair market value of $25. Powered by jforum tax help free When you buy your ticket, you know its value is less than your payment. Powered by jforum tax help free To figure the amount of your charitable contribution, subtract the value of the benefit you receive ($25) from your total payment ($65). Powered by jforum tax help free You can deduct $40 as a charitable contribution to the church. Powered by jforum tax help free Example 2. Powered by jforum tax help free At a fundraising auction conducted by a charity, you pay $600 for a week's stay at a beach house. Powered by jforum tax help free The amount you pay is no more than the fair rental value. Powered by jforum tax help free You have not made a deductible charitable contribution. Powered by jforum tax help free Athletic events. Powered by jforum tax help free   If you make a payment to, or for the benefit of, a college or university and, as a result, you receive the right to buy tickets to an athletic event in the athletic stadium of the college or university, you can deduct 80% of the payment as a charitable contribution. Powered by jforum tax help free   If any part of your payment is for tickets (rather than the right to buy tickets), that part is not deductible. Powered by jforum tax help free Subtract the price of the tickets from your payment. Powered by jforum tax help free You can deduct 80% of the remaining amount as a charitable contribution. Powered by jforum tax help free Example 1. Powered by jforum tax help free You pay $300 a year for membership in a university's athletic scholarship program. Powered by jforum tax help free The only benefit of membership is that you have the right to buy one season ticket for a seat in a designated area of the stadium at the university's home football games. Powered by jforum tax help free You can deduct $240 (80% of $300) as a charitable contribution. Powered by jforum tax help free Example 2. Powered by jforum tax help free The facts are the same as in Example 1 except your $300 payment includes the purchase of one season ticket for the stated ticket price of $120. Powered by jforum tax help free You must subtract the usual price of a ticket ($120) from your $300 payment. Powered by jforum tax help free The result is $180. Powered by jforum tax help free Your deductible charitable contribution is $144 (80% of $180). Powered by jforum tax help free Charity benefit events. Powered by jforum tax help free   If you pay a qualified organization more than fair market value for the right to attend a charity ball, banquet, show, sporting event, or other benefit event, you can deduct only the amount that is more than the value of the privileges or other benefits you receive. Powered by jforum tax help free   If there is an established charge for the event, that charge is the value of your benefit. Powered by jforum tax help free If there is no established charge, the reasonable value of the right to attend the event is the value of your benefit. Powered by jforum tax help free Whether you use the tickets or other privileges has no effect on the amount you can deduct. Powered by jforum tax help free However, if you return the ticket to the qualified organization for resale, you can deduct the entire amount you paid for the ticket. Powered by jforum tax help free    Even if the ticket or other evidence of payment indicates that the payment is a “contribution,” this does not mean you can deduct the entire amount. Powered by jforum tax help free If the ticket shows the price of admission and the amount of the contribution, you can deduct the contribution amount. Powered by jforum tax help free Example. Powered by jforum tax help free You pay $40 to see a special showing of a movie for the benefit of a qualified organization. Powered by jforum tax help free Printed on the ticket is “Contribution–$40. Powered by jforum tax help free ” If the regular price for the movie is $8, your contribution is $32 ($40 payment − $8 regular price). Powered by jforum tax help free Membership fees or dues. Powered by jforum tax help free   You may be able to deduct membership fees or dues you pay to a qualified organization. Powered by jforum tax help free However, you can deduct only the amount that is more than the value of the benefits you receive. Powered by jforum tax help free   You cannot deduct dues, fees, or assessments paid to country clubs and other social organizations. Powered by jforum tax help free They are not qualified organizations. Powered by jforum tax help free Certain membership benefits can be disregarded. Powered by jforum tax help free   Both you and the organization can disregard the following membership benefits if you get them in return for an annual payment of $75 or less. Powered by jforum tax help free Any rights or privileges, other than those discussed under Athletic events , earlier, that you can use frequently while you are a member, such as: Free or discounted admission to the organization's facilities or events, Free or discounted parking, Preferred access to goods or services, and Discounts on the purchase of goods and services. Powered by jforum tax help free Admission, while you are a member, to events open only to members of the organization if the organization reasonably projects that the cost per person (excluding any allocated overhead) is not more than $10. Powered by jforum tax help free 20. Powered by jforum tax help free Token items. Powered by jforum tax help free   You do not have to reduce your contribution by the value of any benefit you receive if both of the following are true. Powered by jforum tax help free You receive only a small item or other benefit of token value. Powered by jforum tax help free The qualified organization correctly determines that the value of the item or benefit you received is not substantial and informs you that you can deduct your payment in full. Powered by jforum tax help free The organization determines whether the value of an item or benefit is substantial by using Revenue Procedures 90-12 and 92-49 and the inflation adjustment in Revenue Procedure 2012–41. Powered by jforum tax help free Written statement. Powered by jforum tax help free   A qualified organization must give you a written statement if you make a payment of more than $75 that is partly a contribution and partly for goods or services. Powered by jforum tax help free The statement must say you can deduct only the amount of your payment that is more than the value of the goods or services you received. Powered by jforum tax help free It must also give you a good faith estimate of the value of those goods or services. Powered by jforum tax help free   The organization can give you the statement either when it solicits or when it receives the payment from you. Powered by jforum tax help free Exception. Powered by jforum tax help free   An organization will not have to give you this statement if one of the following is true. Powered by jforum tax help free The organization is: A governmental organization described in (5) under Types of Qualified Organizations , earlier, or An organization formed only for religious purposes, and the only benefit you receive is an intangible religious benefit (such as admission to a religious ceremony) that generally is not sold in commercial transactions outside the donative context. Powered by jforum tax help free You receive only items whose value is not substantial as described under Token items , earlier. Powered by jforum tax help free You receive only membership benefits that can be disregarded, as described under Membership fees or dues , earlier. Powered by jforum tax help free Expenses Paid for Student Living With You You may be able to deduct some expenses of having a student live with you. Powered by jforum tax help free You can deduct qualifying expenses for a foreign or American student who: Lives in your home under a written agreement between you and a qualified organization (defined later) as part of a program of the organization to provide educational opportunities for the student, Is not your relative (defined later) or dependent (also defined later), and Is a full-time student in the twelfth or any lower grade at a school in the United States. Powered by jforum tax help free You can deduct up to $50 a month for each full calendar month the student lives with you. Powered by jforum tax help free Any month when conditions (1) through (3) above are met for 15 or more days counts as a full month. Powered by jforum tax help free Qualified organization. Powered by jforum tax help free   For these purposes, a qualified organization can be any of the organizations described earlier under Types of Qualified Organizations , except those in (4) and (5). Powered by jforum tax help free For example, if you are providing a home for a student as part of a state or local government program, you cannot deduct your expenses as charitable contributions. Powered by jforum tax help free But see Foster parents under Out-of-Pocket Expenses in Giving Services, later, if you provide the home as a foster parent. Powered by jforum tax help free Relative. Powered by jforum tax help free   The term “relative” means any of the following persons. Powered by jforum tax help free Your child, stepchild, foster child, or a descendant of any of them (for example, your grandchild). Powered by jforum tax help free A legally adopted child is considered your child. Powered by jforum tax help free Your brother, sister, half brother, half sister, stepbrother, or stepsister.

Powered by jforum tax help free However, you may be able to claim a charitable contribution deduction for the unreimbursed portion of your expenses if you are reimbursed only for an extraordinary or one-time item, such as a hospital bill or vacation trip, you paid in advance at the request of the student's parents or the sponsoring organization. Powered by jforum tax help free Mutual exchange program. Powered by jforum tax help free   You cannot deduct the costs of a foreign student living in your home under a mutual exchange program through which your child will live with a family in a foreign country. Powered by jforum tax help free Reporting expenses.

Powered by jforum tax help free But see Fractional Interest in Tangible Personal Property , earlier, and Tangible personal property put to unrelated use , later. Powered by jforum tax help free Related persons include your spouse, children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, and parents. Powered by jforum tax help free Related organizations may include a partnership or corporation in which you have an interest, or an estate or trust with which you have a connection. Powered by jforum tax help free Tangible personal property. Powered by jforum tax help free   This is any property, other than land or buildings, that can be seen or touched. Powered by jforum tax help free It includes furniture, books, jewelry, paintings, and cars. Powered by jforum tax help free Future interest. Powered by jforum tax help free   This is any interest that is to begin at some future time, regardless of whether it is designated as a future interest under state law. Powered by jforum tax help free Example. Powered by jforum tax help free You own an antique car that you contribute to a museum. Powered by jforum tax help free You give up ownership, but retain the right to keep the car in your garage with your personal collection. Powered by jforum tax help free Because you keep an interest in the property, you cannot deduct the contribution. Powered by jforum tax help free If you turn the car over to the museum in a later year, giving up all rights to its use, possession, and enjoyment, you can take a deduction for the contribution in that later year. Powered by jforum tax help free Inventory If you contribute inventory (property you sell in the course of your business), the amount you can deduct is the smaller of its fair market value on the day you contributed it or its basis. Powered by jforum tax help free The basis of contributed inventory is any cost incurred for the inventory in an earlier year that you would otherwise include in your opening inventory for the year of the contribution. Powered by jforum tax help free You must remove the amount of your charitable contribution deduction from your opening inventory. Powered by jforum tax help free It is not part of the cost of goods sold. Powered by jforum tax help free If the cost of donated inventory is not included in your opening inventory, the inventory's basis is zero and you cannot claim a charitable contribution deduction. Powered by jforum tax help free Treat the inventory's cost as you would ordinarily treat it under your method of accounting. Powered by jforum tax help free For example, include the purchase price of inventory bought and donated in the same year in the cost of goods sold for that year. Powered by jforum tax help free A special rule applies to certain donations of food inventory. Powered by jforum tax help free See Food Inventory, later. Powered by jforum tax help free Patents and Other Intellectual Property If you donate intellectual property to a qualified organization, your deduction is limited to the basis of the property or the fair market value of the property, whichever is smaller. Powered by jforum tax help free Intellectual property means any of the following: Patents. Powered by jforum tax help free Copyrights (other than a copyright described in Internal Revenue Code sections 1221(a)(3) or 1231(b)(1)(C)). Powered by jforum tax help free Trademarks. Powered by jforum tax help free Trade names. Powered by jforum tax help free Trade secrets. Powered by jforum tax help free Know-how. Powered by jforum tax help free Software (other than software described in Internal Revenue Code section 197(e)(3)(A)(i)). Powered by jforum tax help free Other similar property or applications or registrations of such property. Powered by jforum tax help free Additional deduction based on income. Powered by jforum tax help free   You may be able to claim additional charitable contribution deductions in the year of the contribution and years following, based on the income, if any, from the donated property. Powered by jforum tax help free   The following table shows the percentage of income from the property that you can deduct for each of your tax years ending on or after the date of the contribution. Powered by jforum tax help free In the table, “tax year 1,” for example, means your first tax year ending on or after the date of the contribution. Powered by jforum tax help free However, you can take the additional deduction only to the extent the total of the amounts figured using this table is more than the amount of the deduction claimed for the original donation of the property. Powered by jforum tax help free   After the legal life of the intellectual property ends, or after the 10th anniversary of the donation, whichever is earlier, no additional deduction is allowed. Powered by jforum tax help free The additional deductions cannot be taken for intellectual property donated to certain private foundations. Powered by jforum tax help free Tax year Deductible percentage 1 100% 2 100% 3 90% 4 80% 5 70% 6 60% 7 50% 8 40% 9 30% 10 20% 11 10% 12 10% Reporting requirements. Powered by jforum tax help free   You must inform the organization at the time of the donation that you intend to treat the donation as a contribution subject to the provisions just discussed. Powered by jforum tax help free   The organization is required to file an information return showing the income from the property, with a copy to you. Powered by jforum tax help free This is done on Form 8899, Notice of Income From Donated Intellectual Property. Powered by jforum tax help free Determining Fair Market Value This section discusses general guidelines for determining the fair market value of various types of donated property. Powered by jforum tax help free Publication 561 contains a more complete discussion. Powered by jforum tax help free Fair market value is the price at which property would change hands between a willing buyer and a willing seller, neither having to buy or sell, and both having reasonable knowledge of all the relevant facts. Powered by jforum tax help free Used clothing. Powered by jforum tax help free   The fair market value of used clothing and other personal items is usually far less than the price you paid for them. Powered by jforum tax help free There are no fixed formulas or methods for finding the value of items of clothing. Powered by jforum tax help free   You should claim as the value the price that buyers of used items actually pay in used clothing stores, such as consignment or thrift shops. Powered by jforum tax help free      Also see Clothing and Household Items , earlier. Powered by jforum tax help free Example. Powered by jforum tax help free    Kristin donated a coat to a thrift store operated by her church. Powered by jforum tax help free She paid $300 for the coat 3 years ago. Powered by jforum tax help free Similar coats in the thrift store sell for $50. Powered by jforum tax help free The fair market value of the coat is $50. Powered by jforum tax help free Kristin's donation is limited to $50. Powered by jforum tax help free Household items. Powered by jforum tax help free   The fair market value of used household items, such as furniture, appliances, and linens, is usually much lower than the price paid when new. Powered by jforum tax help free These items may have little or no market value because they are in a worn condition, out of style, or no longer useful. Powered by jforum tax help free For these reasons, formulas (such as using a percentage of the cost to buy a new replacement item) are not acceptable in determining value. Powered by jforum tax help free   You should support your valuation with photographs, canceled checks, receipts from your purchase of the items, or other evidence. Powered by jforum tax help free Magazine or newspaper articles and photographs that describe the items and statements by the recipients of the items are also useful. Powered by jforum tax help free Do not include any of this evidence with your tax return. Powered by jforum tax help free   If the property is valuable because it is old or unique, see the discussion under Paintings, Antiques, and Other Objects of Art in Publication 561. Powered by jforum tax help free   Also see Clothing and Household Items , earlier. Powered by jforum tax help free Cars, boats, and airplanes. Powered by jforum tax help free   If you contribute a car, boat, or airplane to a charitable organization, you must determine its fair market value. Powered by jforum tax help free Boats. Powered by jforum tax help free   Except for small, inexpensive boats, the valuation of boats should be based on an appraisal by a marine surveyor or appraiser because the physical condition is critical to the value. Powered by jforum tax help free Cars. Powered by jforum tax help free   Certain commercial firms and trade organizations publish used car pricing guides, commonly called “blue books,” containing complete dealer sale prices or dealer average prices for recent model years. Powered by jforum tax help free The guides may be published monthly or seasonally, and for different regions of the country. Powered by jforum tax help free These guides also provide estimates for adjusting for unusual equipment, unusual mileage, and physical condition. Powered by jforum tax help free The prices are not “official” and these publications are not considered an appraisal of any specific donated property. Powered by jforum tax help free But they do provide clues for making an appraisal and suggest relative prices for comparison with current sales and offerings in your area. Powered by jforum tax help free   These publications are sometimes available from public libraries, or from the loan officer at a bank, credit union, or finance company. Powered by jforum tax help free You can also find used car pricing information on the Internet. Powered by jforum tax help free   To find the fair market value of a donated car, use the price listed in a used car guide for a private party sale, not the dealer retail value. Powered by jforum tax help free However, the fair market value may be less if the car has engine trouble, body damage, high mileage, or any type of excessive wear. Powered by jforum tax help free The fair market value of a donated car is the same as the price listed in a used car guide for a private party sale only if the guide lists a sales price for a car that is the same make, model, and year, sold in the same area, in the same condition, with the same or similar options or accessories, and with the same or similar warranties as the donated car. Powered by jforum tax help free Example. Powered by jforum tax help free You donate a used car in poor condition to a local high school for use by students studying car repair. Powered by jforum tax help free A used car guide shows the dealer retail value for this type of car in poor condition is $1,600. Powered by jforum tax help free However, the guide shows the price for a private party sale of the car is only $750. Powered by jforum tax help free The fair market value of the car is considered to be $750. Powered by jforum tax help free Large quantities. Powered by jforum tax help free   If you contribute a large number of the same item, fair market value is the price at which comparable numbers of the item are being sold. Powered by jforum tax help free Example. Powered by jforum tax help free You purchase 500 bibles for $1,000. Powered by jforum tax help free The person who sells them to you says the retail value of these bibles is $3,000. Powered by jforum tax help free If you contribute the bibles to a qualified organization, you can claim a deduction only for the price at which similar numbers of the same bible are currently being sold. Powered by jforum tax help free Your charitable contribution is $1,000, unless you can show that similar numbers of that bible wer
