Amend irs return To deduct your contribution to a Canadian charity, you generally must have income from sources in Canada. Amend irs return See Publication 597, Information on the United States-Canada Income Tax Treaty, for information on how to figure your deduction. Amend irs return Mexican charities. Amend irs return   Under the U. Amend irs return S. Amend irs return -Mexico income tax treaty, a contribution to a Mexican charitable organization may be deductible, but only if and to the extent the contribution would have been treated as a charitable contribution to a public charity created or organized under U. Amend irs return S. Amend irs return law. Amend irs return To deduct your contribution to a Mexican charity, you must have income from sources in Mexico. Amend irs return The limits described in Limits on Deductions , later, apply and are figured using your income from Mexican sources. Amend irs return Israeli charities. Amend irs return   Under the U. Amend irs return S. Amend irs return -Israel income tax treaty, a contribution to an Israeli charitable organization is deductible if and to the extent the contribution would have been treated as a charitable contribution if the organization had been created or organized under U. Amend irs return S. Amend irs return law. Amend irs return To deduct your contribution to an Israeli charity, you must have income from sources in Israel. Amend irs return The limits described in Limits on Deductions , later, apply. Amend irs return The deduction is also limited to 25% of your adjusted gross income from Israeli sources. Amend irs return Contributions You Can Deduct Generally, you can deduct contributions of money or property you make to, or for the use of, a qualified organization. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return The contributions must be made to a qualified organization and not set aside for use by a specific person. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return See Contributions of Property , later. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return In addition, the total of your charitable contributions deduction and certain other itemized deductions may be limited. Amend irs return See Limits on Deductions , later. Amend irs return Table 1 in this publication gives examples of contributions you can and cannot deduct. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return Also see Contributions From Which You Benefit under Contributions You Cannot Deduct, later. Amend irs return If you pay more than fair market value to a qualified organization for goods or services, the excess may be a charitable contribution. Amend irs return For the excess amount to qualify, you must pay it with the intent to make a charitable contribution. Amend irs return Example 1. Amend irs return You pay $65 for a ticket to a dinner-dance at a church. Amend irs return Your entire $65 payment goes to the church. Amend irs return The ticket to the dinner-dance has a fair market value of $25. Amend irs return When you buy your ticket, you know its value is less than your payment. Amend irs return To figure the amount of your charitable contribution, subtract the value of the benefit you receive ($25) from your total payment ($65). Amend irs return You can deduct $40 as a charitable contribution to the church. Amend irs return Example 2. Amend irs return At a fundraising auction conducted by a charity, you pay $600 for a week's stay at a beach house. Amend irs return The amount you pay is no more than the fair rental value. Amend irs return You have not made a deductible charitable contribution. Amend irs return Athletic events. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return   If any part of your payment is for tickets (rather than the right to buy tickets), that part is not deductible. Amend irs return Subtract the price of the tickets from your payment. Amend irs return You can deduct 80% of the remaining amount as a charitable contribution. Amend irs return Example 1. Amend irs return You pay $300 a year for membership in a university's athletic scholarship program. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return You can deduct $240 (80% of $300) as a charitable contribution. Amend irs return Example 2. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return You must subtract the usual price of a ticket ($120) from your $300 payment. Amend irs return The result is $180. Amend irs return Your deductible charitable contribution is $144 (80% of $180). Amend irs return Charity benefit events. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return   If there is an established charge for the event, that charge is the value of your benefit. Amend irs return If there is no established charge, the reasonable value of the right to attend the event is the value of your benefit. Amend irs return Whether you use the tickets or other privileges has no effect on the amount you can deduct. Amend irs return However, if you return the ticket to the qualified organization for resale, you can deduct the entire amount you paid for the ticket. Amend irs return    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. Amend irs return If the ticket shows the price of admission and the amount of the contribution, you can deduct the contribution amount. Amend irs return Example. Amend irs return You pay $40 to see a special showing of a movie for the benefit of a qualified organization. Amend irs return Printed on the ticket is “Contribution–$40. Amend irs return ” If the regular price for the movie is $8, your contribution is $32 ($40 payment − $8 regular price). Amend irs return Membership fees or dues. Amend irs return   You may be able to deduct membership fees or dues you pay to a qualified organization. Amend irs return However, you can deduct only the amount that is more than the value of the benefits you receive. Amend irs return   You cannot deduct dues, fees, or assessments paid to country clubs and other social organizations. Amend irs return They are not qualified organizations. Amend irs return Certain membership benefits can be disregarded. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return 20. Amend irs return Token items. Amend irs return   You do not have to reduce your contribution by the value of any benefit you receive if both of the following are true. Amend irs return You receive only a small item or other benefit of token value. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return Written statement. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return It must also give you a good faith estimate of the value of those goods or services. Amend irs return   The organization can give you the statement either when it solicits or when it receives the payment from you. Amend irs return Exception. Amend irs return   An organization will not have to give you this statement if one of the following is true. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return You receive only items whose value is not substantial as described under Token items , earlier. Amend irs return You receive only membership benefits that can be disregarded, as described under Membership fees or dues , earlier. Amend irs return Expenses Paid for Student Living With You You may be able to deduct some expenses of having a student live with you. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return You can deduct up to $50 a month for each full calendar month the student lives with you. Amend irs return Any month when conditions (1) through (3) above are met for 15 or more days counts as a full month. Amend irs return Qualified organization. Amend irs return   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). Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return But see Foster parents under Out-of-Pocket Expenses in Giving Services, later, if you provide the home as a foster parent. Amend irs return Relative. Amend irs return   The term “relative” means any of the following persons. Amend irs return Your child, stepchild, foster child, or a descendant of any of them (for example, your grandchild). Amend irs return A legally adopted child is considered your child. Amend irs return Your brother, sister, half brother, half sister, stepbrother, or stepsister. Amend irs return Your father, mother, grandparent, or other direct ancestor. Amend irs return Your stepfather or stepmother. Amend irs return A son or daughter of your brother or sister. Amend irs return A brother or sister of your father or mother. Amend irs return Your son-in-law, daughter-in-law, father-in-law, mother-in-law, brother-in-law, or sister-in-law. Amend irs return Dependent. Amend irs return   For this purpose, the term “dependent” means: A person you can claim as a dependent, or A person you could have claimed as a dependent except that: He or she received gross income of $3,900 or more, He or she filed a joint return, or You, or your spouse if filing jointly, could be claimed as a dependent on someone else's 2013 return. Amend irs return    Foreign students brought to this country under a qualified international education exchange program and placed in American homes for a temporary period generally are not U. Amend irs return S. Amend irs return residents and cannot be claimed as dependents. Amend irs return Qualifying expenses. Amend irs return   You may be able to deduct the cost of books, tuition, food, clothing, transportation, medical and dental care, entertainment, and other amounts you actually spend for the well-being of the student. Amend irs return Expenses that do not qualify. Amend irs return   You cannot deduct depreciation on your home, the fair market value of lodging, and similar items not considered amounts actually spent by you. Amend irs return Nor can you deduct general household expenses, such as taxes, insurance, and repairs. Amend irs return Reimbursed expenses. Amend irs return   In most cases, you cannot claim a charitable contribution deduction if you are compensated or reimbursed for any part of the costs of having a student live with you. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return Mutual exchange program. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return Reporting expenses. Amend irs return   For a list of what you must file with your return if you deduct expenses for a student living with you, see Reporting expenses for student living with you under How To Report, later. Amend irs return Out-of-Pocket Expenses in Giving Services Table 2. Amend irs return Volunteers' Questions and Answers If you volunteer for a qualified organization, the following questions and answers may apply to you. Amend irs return All of the rules explained in this publication also apply. Amend irs return See, in particular, Out-of-Pocket Expenses in Giving Services . Amend irs return Question Answer I volunteer 6 hours a week in the office of a qualified organization. Amend irs return The receptionist is paid $10 an hour for the same work. Amend irs return Can I deduct $60 a week for my time? No, you cannot deduct the value of your time or services. Amend irs return  The office is 30 miles from my home. Amend irs return Can I deduct any of my car expenses for these trips? Yes, you can deduct the costs of gas and oil that are directly related to getting to and from the place where you volunteer. Amend irs return If you do not want to figure your actual costs, you can deduct 14 cents for each mile. Amend irs return I volunteer as a Red Cross nurse's aide at a hospital. Amend irs return Can I deduct the cost of the uniforms I must wear? Yes, you can deduct the cost of buying and cleaning your uniforms if the hospital is a qualified organization, the uniforms are not suitable for everyday use, and you must wear them when volunteering. Amend irs return I pay a babysitter to watch my children while I volunteer for a qualified organization. Amend irs return Can I deduct these costs? No, you cannot deduct payments for childcare expenses as a charitable contribution, even if you would be unable to volunteer without childcare. Amend irs return (If you have childcare expenses so you can work for pay, see Publication 503, Child and Dependent Care Expenses. Amend irs return ) Although you cannot deduct the value of your services given to a qualified organization, you may be able to deduct some amounts you pay in giving services to a qualified organization. Amend irs return The amounts must be: Unreimbursed, Directly connected with the services, Expenses you had only because of the services you gave, and Not personal, living, or family expenses. Amend irs return Table 2 contains questions and answers that apply to some individuals who volunteer their services. Amend irs return Underprivileged youths selected by charity. Amend irs return   You can deduct reasonable unreimbursed out-of-pocket expenses you pay to allow underprivileged youths to attend athletic events, movies, or dinners. Amend irs return The youths must be selected by a charitable organization whose goal is to reduce juvenile delinquency. Amend irs return Your own similar expenses in accompanying the youths are not deductible. Amend irs return Conventions. Amend irs return   If a qualified organization selects you to attend a convention as its representative, you can deduct your unreimbursed expenses for travel, including reasonable amounts for meals and lodging, while away from home overnight for the convention. Amend irs return However, see Travel , later. Amend irs return   You cannot deduct personal expenses for sightseeing, fishing parties, theater tickets, or nightclubs. Amend irs return You also cannot deduct travel, meals and lodging, and other expenses for your spouse or children. Amend irs return   You cannot deduct your travel expenses in attending a church convention if you go only as a member of your church rather than as a chosen representative. Amend irs return You can, however, deduct unreimbursed expenses that are directly connected with giving services for your church during the convention. Amend irs return Uniforms. Amend irs return   You can deduct the cost and upkeep of uniforms that are not suitable for everyday use and that you must wear while performing donated services for a charitable organization. Amend irs return Foster parents. Amend irs return   You may be able to deduct as a charitable contribution some of the costs of being a foster parent (foster care provider) if you have no profit motive in providing the foster care and are not, in fact, making a profit. Amend irs return A qualified organization must select the individuals you take into your home for foster care. Amend irs return   You can deduct expenses that meet both of the following requirements. Amend irs return They are unreimbursed out-of-pocket expenses to feed, clothe, and care for the foster child. Amend irs return They are incurred primarily to benefit the qualified organization. Amend irs return   Unreimbursed expenses that you cannot deduct as charitable contributions may be considered support provided by you in determining whether you can claim the foster child as a dependent. Amend irs return For details, see Publication 501, Exemptions, Standard Deduction, and Filing Information. Amend irs return Example. Amend irs return You cared for a foster child because you wanted to adopt her, not to benefit the agency that placed her in your home. Amend irs return Your unreimbursed expenses are not deductible as charitable contributions. Amend irs return Church deacon. Amend irs return   You can deduct as a charitable contribution any unreimbursed expenses you have while in a permanent diaconate program established by your church. Amend irs return These expenses include the cost of vestments, books, and transportation required in order to serve in the program as either a deacon candidate or an ordained deacon. Amend irs return Car expenses. Amend irs return   You can deduct as a charitable contribution any unreimbursed out-of-pocket expenses, such as the cost of gas and oil, directly related to the use of your car in giving services to a charitable organization. Amend irs return You cannot deduct general repair and maintenance expenses, depreciation, registration fees, or the costs of tires or insurance. Amend irs return   If you do not want to deduct your actual expenses, you can use a standard mileage rate of 14 cents a mile to figure your contribution. Amend irs return   You can deduct parking fees and tolls whether you use your actual expenses or the standard mileage rate. Amend irs return   You must keep reliable written records of your car expenses. Amend irs return For more information, see Car expenses under Records To Keep, later. Amend irs return Travel. Amend irs return   Generally, you can claim a charitable contribution deduction for travel expenses necessarily incurred while you are away from home performing services for a charitable organization only if there is no significant element of personal pleasure, recreation, or vacation in the travel. Amend irs return This applies whether you pay the expenses directly or indirectly. Amend irs return You are paying the expenses indirectly if you make a payment to the charitable organization and the organization pays for your travel expenses. Amend irs return   The deduction for travel expenses will not be denied simply because you enjoy providing services to the charitable organization. Amend irs return Even if you enjoy the trip, you can take a charitable contribution deduction for your travel expenses if you are on duty in a genuine and substantial sense throughout the trip. Amend irs return However, if you have only nominal duties, or if for significant parts of the trip you do not have any duties, you cannot deduct your travel expenses. Amend irs return Example 1. Amend irs return You are a troop leader for a tax-exempt youth group and you take the group on a camping trip. Amend irs return You are responsible for overseeing the setup of the camp and for providing adult supervision for other activities during the entire trip. Amend irs return You participate in the activities of the group and enjoy your time with them. Amend irs return You oversee the breaking of camp and you transport the group home. Amend irs return You can deduct your travel expenses. Amend irs return Example 2. Amend irs return You sail from one island to another and spend 8 hours a day counting whales and other forms of marine life. Amend irs return The project is sponsored by a charitable organization. Amend irs return In most circumstances, you cannot deduct your expenses. Amend irs return Example 3. Amend irs return You work for several hours each morning on an archeological dig sponsored by a charitable organization. Amend irs return The rest of the day is free for recreation and sightseeing. Amend irs return You cannot take a charitable contribution deduction even though you work very hard during those few hours. Amend irs return Example 4. Amend irs return You spend the entire day attending a charitable organization's regional meeting as a chosen representative. Amend irs return In the evening you go to the theater. Amend irs return You can claim your travel expenses as charitable contributions, but you cannot claim the cost of your evening at the theater. Amend irs return Daily allowance (per diem). Amend irs return   If you provide services for a charitable organization and receive a daily allowance to cover reasonable travel expenses, including meals and lodging while away from home overnight, you must include in income any part of the allowance that is more than your deductible travel expenses. Amend irs return You may be able to deduct any necessary travel expenses that are more than the allowance. Amend irs return Deductible travel expenses. Amend irs return   These include: Air, rail, and bus transportation, Out-of-pocket expenses for your car, Taxi fares or other costs of transportation between the airport or station and your hotel, Lodging costs, and The cost of meals. Amend irs return Because these travel expenses are not business-related, they are not subject to the same limits as business related expenses. Amend irs return For information on business travel expenses, see Travel in Publication 463, Travel, Entertainment, Gift, and Car Expenses. Amend irs return Expenses of Whaling Captains You may be able to deduct as a charitable contribution any reasonable and necessary whaling expenses you pay during the year to carry out sanctioned whaling activities.

Amend irs return You must keep records showing the time, place, date, amount, and nature of the expenses. Amend irs return For details, see Revenue Procedure 2006-50, which is on page 944 of Internal Revenue Bulletin 2006-47 at www. Amend irs return irs. Amend irs return gov/pub/irs-irbs/irb06-47.

Amend irs return A qualified vehicle is: A car or any motor vehicle manufactured mainly for use on public streets, roads, and highways, A boat, or An airplane. Amend irs return Deduction more than $500. Amend irs return   If you donate a qualified vehicle with a claimed fair market value of more than $500, you can deduct the smaller of: The gross proceeds from the sale of the vehicle by the organization, or The vehicle's fair market value on the date of the contribution. Amend irs return If the vehicle's fair market value was more than your cost or other basis, you may have to reduce the fair market value to figure the deductible amount, as described under Giving Property That Has Increased in Value , later. Amend irs return Form 1098-C. Amend irs return   You must attach to your return Copy B of the Form 1098-C, Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes, (or other statement containing the same information as Form 1098-C) you received from the organization. Amend irs return The Form 1098-C (or other statement) will show the gross proceeds from the sale of the vehicle. Amend irs return   If you e-file your return, you must: Attach Copy B of Form 1098-C to Form 8453, U. Amend irs return S. Amend irs return Individual Income Tax Transmittal for an IRS e-file Return, and mail the forms to the IRS, or Include Copy B of Form 1098-C as a pdf attachment if your software program allows it.

Amend irs return Attach Copy B of Form 1098-C (or other statement) to the amended return. Amend irs return Exceptions. Amend irs return   There are two exceptions to the rules just described for deductions of more than $500. Amend irs return Exception 1—vehicle used or improved by organization. Amend irs return   If the qualified organization makes a significant intervening use of or material improvement to the vehicle before transferring it, you generally can deduct the vehicle's fair market value at the time of the contribution. Amend irs return But if the vehicle's fair market value was more than your cost or other basis, you may have to reduce the fair market value to get the deductible amount, as described under Giving Property That Has Increased in Value , later. Amend irs return The Form 1098-C (or other statement) will show whether this exception applies. Amend irs return    Exception 2—vehicle given or sold to needy individual. Amend irs return   If the qualified organization will give the vehicle, or sell it for a price well below fair market value, to a needy individual to further the organization's charitable purpose, you generally can deduct the vehicle's fair market value at the time of the contribution. Amend irs return But if the vehicle's fair market value was more than your cost or other basis, you may have to reduce the fair market value to get the deductible amount, as described under Giving Property That Has Increased in Value , later. Amend irs return The Form 1098-C (or other statement) will show whether this exception applies. Amend irs return   This exception does not apply if the organization sells the vehicle at auction. Amend irs return In that case, you cannot deduct the vehicle's fair market value. Amend irs return Example. Amend irs return Anita donates a used car to a qualified organization. Amend irs return She bought it 3 years ago for $9,000. Amend irs return A used car guide shows the fair market value for this type of car is $6,000. Amend irs return However, Anita gets a Form 1098-C from the organization showing the car was sold for $2,900. Amend irs return Neither exception 1 nor exception 2 applies. Amend irs return If Anita itemizes her deductions, she can deduct $2,900 for her donation. Amend irs return She must attach Form 1098-C and Form 8283 to her return. Amend irs return Deduction $500 or less. Amend irs return   If the qualified organization sells the vehicle for $500 or less and exceptions 1 and 2 do not apply, you can deduct the smaller of: $500, or The vehicle's fair market value on the date of the contribution. Amend irs return But if the vehicle's fair market value was more than your cost or other basis, you may have to reduce the fair market value to get the deductible amount, as described under Giving Property That Has Increased in Value , later. Amend irs return   If the vehicle's fair market value is at least $250 but not more than $500, you must have a written statement from the qualified organization acknowledging your donation. Amend irs return The statement must contain the information and meet the tests for an acknowledgment described under Contributions of $250 or More under Records To Keep, later. Amend irs return Fair market value. Amend irs return   To determine a vehicle's fair market value, use the rules described under Determining Fair Market Value , later. Amend irs return Donations of inventory. Amend irs return   The vehicle donation rules just described do not apply to donations of inventory. Amend irs return For example, these rules do not apply if you are a car dealer who donates a car you had been holding for sale to customers. Amend irs return See Inventory , later. Amend irs return Taxidermy Property If you donate taxidermy property to a qualified organization, your deduction is limited to your basis in the property or its fair market value, whichever is less. Amend irs return This applies if you prepared, stuffed, or mounted the property or paid or incurred the cost of preparing, stuffing, or mounting the property. Amend irs return Your basis for this purpose includes only the cost of preparing, stuffing, and mounting the property. Amend irs return Your basis does not include transportation or travel costs. Amend irs return It also does not include the direct or indirect costs for hunting or killing an animal, such as equipment costs. Amend irs return In addition, it does not include the value of your time. Amend irs return Taxidermy property means any work of art that: Is the reproduction or preservation of an animal, in whole or in part, Is prepared, stuffed, or mounted to recreate one or more characteristics of the animal, and Contains a part of the body of the dead animal. Amend irs return Property Subject to a Debt If you contribute property subject to a debt (such as a mortgage), you must reduce the fair market value of the property by: Any allowable deduction for interest you paid (or will pay) that is attributable to any period after the contribution, and If the property is a bond, the lesser of: Any allowable deduction for interest you paid (or will pay) to buy or carry the bond that is attributable to any period before the contribution, or The interest, including bond discount, receivable on the bond that is attributable to any period before the contribution, and that is not includible in your income due to your accounting method. Amend irs return This prevents you from deducting the same amount as both investment interest and a charitable contribution. Amend irs return If the recipient (or another person) assumes the debt, you must also reduce the fair market value of the property by the amount of the outstanding debt assumed. Amend irs return The amount of the debt is also treated as an amount realized on the sale or exchange of property for purposes of figuring your taxable gain (if any). Amend irs return For more information, see Bargain Sales under Giving Property That Has Increased in Value, later. Amend irs return Partial Interest in Property Generally, you cannot deduct a charitable contribution of less than your entire interest in property. Amend irs return Right to use property. Amend irs return   A contribution of the right to use property is a contribution of less than your entire interest in that property and is not deductible. Amend irs return Example 1. Amend irs return You own a 10-story office building and donate rent-free use of the top floor to a charitable organization. Amend irs return Because you still own the building, you have contributed a partial interest in the property and cannot take a deduction for the contribution. Amend irs return Example 2. Amend irs return Mandy White owns a vacation home at the beach that she sometimes rents to others. Amend irs return For a fund-raising auction at her church, she donated the right to use the vacation home for 1 week. Amend irs return At the auction, the church received and accepted a bid from Lauren Green equal to the fair rental value of the home for 1 week. Amend irs return Mandy cannot claim a deduction because of the partial interest rule. Amend irs return Lauren cannot claim a deduction either, because she received a benefit equal to the amount of her payment. Amend irs return See Contributions From Which You Benefit , earlier. Amend irs return Exceptions. Amend irs return   You can deduct a charitable contribution of a partial interest in property only if that interest represents one of the following items. Amend irs return A remainder interest in your personal home or farm. Amend irs return A remainder interest is one that passes to a beneficiary after the end of an earlier interest in the property. Amend irs return Example. Amend irs return You keep the right to live in your home during your lifetime and give your church a remainder interest that begins upon your death. Amend irs return You can deduct the value of the remainder interest. Amend irs return An undivided part of your entire interest. Amend irs return This must consist of a part of every substantial interest or right you own in the property and must last as long as your interest in the property lasts. Amend irs return But see Fractional Interest in Tangible Personal Property , later. Amend irs return Example. Amend irs return You contribute voting stock to a qualified organization but keep the right to vote the stock. Amend irs return The right to vote is a substantial right in the stock. Amend irs return You have not contributed an undivided part of your entire interest and cannot deduct your contribution. Amend irs return A partial interest that would be deductible if transferred to certain types of trusts. Amend irs return A qualified conservation contribution (defined later). Amend irs return For information about how to figure the value of a contribution of a partial interest in property, see Partial Interest in Property Not in Trust in Publication 561. Amend irs return Fractional Interest in Tangible Personal Property You cannot deduct a charitable contribution of a fractional interest in tangible personal property unless all interests in the property are held immediately before the contribution by: You, or You and the qualifying organization receiving the contribution. Amend irs return If you make an additional contribution later, the fair market value of that contribution will be determined by using the smaller of: The fair market value of the property at the time of the initial contribution, or The fair market value of the property at the time of the additional contribution. Amend irs return Tangible personal property is defined later under Future Interest in Tangible Personal Property . Amend irs return A fractional interest in property is an undivided portion of your entire interest in the property. Amend irs return Example. Amend irs return An undivided one-quarter interest in a painting that entitles an art museum to possession of the painting for 3 months of each year is a fractional interest in the property. Amend irs return Recapture of deduction. Amend irs return   You must recapture your charitable contribution deduction by including it in your income if both of the following statements are true. Amend irs return You contributed a fractional interest in tangible personal property after August 17, 2006. Amend irs return You do not contribute the rest of your interests in the property to the original recipient or, if it no longer exists, another qualified organization on or before the earlier of: The date that is 10 years after the date of the initial contribution, or The date of your death. Amend irs return   Recapture is also required if the qualified organization has not taken substantial physical possession of the property and used it in a way related to the organization's purpose during the period beginning on the date of the initial contribution and ending on the earlier of: The date that is 10 years after the date of the initial contribution, or The date of your death. Amend irs return Additional tax. Amend irs return   If you must recapture your deduction, you must also pay interest and an additional tax equal to 10% of the amount recaptured. Amend irs return Qualified Conservation Contribution A qualified conservation contribution is a contribution of a qualified real property interest to a qualified organization to be used only for conservation purposes. Amend irs return Qualified organization. Amend irs return   For purposes of a qualified conservation contribution, a qualified organization is: A governmental unit, A publicly supported charity, or An organization controlled by, and operated for the exclusive benefit of, a governmental unit or a publicly supported charity. Amend irs return The organization also must have a commitment to protect the conservation purposes of the donation and must have the resources to enforce the restrictions. Amend irs return   A publicly supported charity is an organization of the type described in (1) under Types of Qualified Organizations , earlier, that normally receives a substantial part of its support, other than income from its exempt activities, from direct or indirect contributions from the general public or from governmental units. Amend irs return Qualified real property interest. Amend irs return   This is any of the following interests in real property. Amend irs return Your entire interest in real estate other than a mineral interest (subsurface oil, gas, or other minerals, and the right of access to these minerals). Amend irs return A remainder interest. Amend irs return A restriction (granted in perpetuity) on the use that may be made of the real property. Amend irs return Conservation purposes.

Amend irs return Preserving land areas for outdoor recreation by, or for the education of, the general public. Amend irs return Protecting a relatively natural habitat of fish, wildlife, or plants, or a similar ecosystem. Amend irs return Preserving open space, including farmland and forest land, if it yields a significant public benefit. Amend irs return The open space must be preserved either for the scenic enjoyment of the general public or under a clearly defined federal, state, or local governmental conservation policy. Amend irs return Preserving a historically important land area or a certified historic structure. Amend irs return Building in registered historic district. Amend irs return   If a building in a registered historic district is a certified historic structure, a contribution of a qualified real property interest that is an easement or other restriction on the exterior of the building is deductible only if it meets all of the following conditions. Amend irs return The restriction must preserve the entire exterior of the building (including its front, sides, rear, and height) and must prohibit any change to the exterior of the building that is inconsistent with its historical character. Amend irs return You and the organization receiving the contribution must enter into a written agreement certifying, under penalty of perjury, that the organization: Is a qualified organization with a purpose of environmental protection, land conservation, open space preservation, or historic preservation, and Has the resources to manage and enforce the restriction and a commitment to do so. Amend irs return You must include with your return: A qualified appraisal, Photographs of the building's entire exterior, and A description of all restrictions on development of the building, such as zoning laws and restrictive covenants. Amend irs return   If you claimed the rehabilitation credit for the building for any of the 5 years before the year of the contribution, your charitable deduction is reduced. Amend irs return For more information, see Form 3468, Investment Credit, and Internal Revenue Code section 170(f)(14). Amend irs return   If you claim a deduction of more than $10,000, your deduction will not be allowed unless you pay a $500 filing fee. Amend irs return See Form 8283-V, Payment Voucher for Filing Fee Under Section 170(f)(13), and its instructions. Amend irs return You may be able to deduct the filing fee as a miscellaneous itemized deduction, subject to the 2%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit, on Schedule A (Form 1040). Amend irs return See Deductions Subject to the 2% Limit in Publication 529 for more information. Amend irs return More information. Amend irs return   For information about determining the fair market value of qualified conservation contributions, see Publication 561. Amend irs return For information about the limits that apply to deductions for this type of contribution, see Limits on Deductions , later. Amend irs return For more information about qualified conservation contributions, see Regulations section 1. Amend irs return 170A-14. Amend irs return Future Interest in Tangible Personal Property You cannot deduct the value of a charitable contribution of a future interest in tangible personal property until all intervening interests in and rights to the actual possession or enjoyment of the property have either expired or been turned over to someone other than yourself, a related person, or a related organization. Amend irs return But see Fractional Interest in Tangible Personal Property , earlier, and Tangible personal property put to unrelated use , later. Amend irs return Related persons include your spouse, children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, and parents. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return Tangible personal property. Amend irs return   This is any property, other than land or buildings, that can be seen or touched. Amend irs return It includes furniture, books, jewelry, paintings, and cars. Amend irs return Future interest. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return Example. Amend irs return You own an antique car that you contribute to a museum. Amend irs return You give up ownership, but retain the right to keep the car in your garage with your personal collection. Amend irs return Because you keep an interest in the property, you cannot deduct the contribution. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return You must remove the amount of your charitable contribution deduction from your opening inventory. Amend irs return It is not part of the cost of goods sold. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return Treat the inventory's cost as you would ordinarily treat it under your method of accounting. Amend irs return For example, include the purchase price of inventory bought and donated in the same year in the cost of goods sold for that year. Amend irs return A special rule applies to certain donations of food inventory. Amend irs return See Food Inventory, later. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return Intellectual property means any of the following: Patents. Amend irs return Copyrights (other than a copyright described in Internal Revenue Code sections 1221(a)(3) or 1231(b)(1)(C)). Amend irs return Trademarks. Amend irs return Trade names. Amend irs return Trade secrets. Amend irs return Know-how. Amend irs return Software (other than software described in Internal Revenue Code section 197(e)(3)(A)(i)). Amend irs return Other similar property or applications or registrations of such property. Amend irs return Additional deduction based on income. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return In the table, “tax year 1,” for example, means your first tax year ending on or after the date of the contribution. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return The additional deductions cannot be taken for intellectual property donated to certain private foundations. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return   The organization is required to file an information return showing the income from the property, with a copy to you. Amend irs return This is done on Form 8899, Notice of Income From Donated Intellectual Property. Amend irs return Determining Fair Market Value This section discusses general guidelines for determining the fair market value of various types of donated property. Amend irs return Publication 561 contains a more complete discussion. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return Used clothing. Amend irs return   The fair market value of used clothing and other personal items is usually far less than the price you paid for them. Amend irs return There are no fixed formulas or methods for finding the value of items of clothing. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return      Also see Clothing and Household Items , earlier. Amend irs return Example. Amend irs return    Kristin donated a coat to a thrift store operated by her church. Amend irs return She paid $300 for the coat 3 years ago. Amend irs return Similar coats in the thrift store sell for $50. Amend irs return The fair market value of the coat is $50. Amend irs return Kristin's donation is limited to $50. Amend irs return Household items. Amend irs return   The fair market value of used household items, such as furniture, appliances, and linens, is usually much lower than the price paid when new. Amend irs return These items may have little or no market value because they are in a worn condition, out of style, or no longer useful. Amend irs return For these reasons, formulas (such as using a percentage of the cost to buy a new replacement item) are not acceptable in determining value. Amend irs return   You should support your valuation with photographs, canceled checks, receipts from your purchase of the items, or other evidence. Amend irs return Magazine or newspaper articles and photographs that describe the items and statements by the recipients of the items are also useful. Amend irs return Do not include any of this evidence with your tax return. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return   Also see Clothing and Household Items , earlier. Amend irs return Cars, boats, and airplanes. Amend irs return   If you contribute a car, boat, or airplane to a charitable organization, you must determine its fair market value. Amend irs return Boats. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return Cars. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return The guides may be published monthly or seasonally, and for different regions of the country. Amend irs return These guides also provide estimates for adjusting for unusual equipment, unusual mileage, and physical condition. Amend irs return The prices are not “official” and these publications are not considered an appraisal of any specific donated property. Amend irs return But they do provide clues for making an appraisal and suggest relative prices for comparison with current sales and offerings in your area. Amend irs return   These publications are sometimes available from public libraries, or from the loan officer at a bank, credit union, or finance company. Amend irs return You can also find used car pricing information on the Internet. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return However, the fair market value may be less if the car has engine trouble, body damage, high mileage, or any type of excessive wear. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return Example. Amend irs return You donate a used car in poor condition to a local high school for use by students studying car repair. Amend irs return A used car guide shows the dealer retail value for this type of car in poor condition is $1,600. Amend irs return However, the guide shows the price for a private party sale of the car is only $750. Amend irs return The fair market value of the car is considered to be $750. Amend irs return Large quantities. Amend irs return   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. Amend irs return Example. Amend irs return You purchase 500 bibles for $1,000. Amend irs return The person who sells them to you says the retail value of these bibles is $3,000. Amend irs return 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. Amend irs return Your charitable contribution is $1,000, unless you can show that similar numbers of that bible wer

Tax Relief for Victims of Hurricane Isaac in Louisiana

LA/MS-2012-15, Sept. 5, 2012

Updated 10/22/12 to include Pointe Coupee and West Baton Rouge parishes

Updated 10/3/12 to include Allen, Morehouse and St. Martin parishes

Updated 9/17/12 to include East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana and West Feliciana parishes.

Updated 9/10/12 to include Assumption, Iberville, St. Helena, St. James, St. Mary, Tangipahoa, Terrebonne, and Washington parishes.

NEW ORLEANS — Victims of Hurricane Isaac that began on Aug. 26, 2012 in parts of Louisiana may qualify for tax relief from the Internal Revenue Service.

Following recent disaster declarations for individual assistance issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the IRS announced today that affected taxpayers in Louisiana will receive tax relief, and other locations may be added in coming days based on additional damage assessments by FEMA.

The President has declared the parishes of Allen, Ascension, Assumption, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Jefferson, Lafourche, Livingston, Morehouse, Orleans, Plaquemines, Pointe Coupee, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. Helena, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Martin, St. Mary,  St. Tammany,  Tangipahoa, Terrebonne, Washington,  West Baton Rouge and West Feliciana a federal disaster area. Individuals who reside or have a business in these parishes may qualify for tax relief.

The declaration permits the IRS to postpone certain deadlines for taxpayers who reside or have a business in the disaster area. For instance, certain deadlines falling on or after Aug. 26, and on or before Jan. 11, 2013, have been postponed to Jan. 11, 2013. This includes the quarterly estimated tax payment due on Sept. 17, 2012.

In addition, the IRS is waiving the failure-to-deposit penalties for employment and excise tax deposits due on or after Aug. 26, and on or before Sept. 10, as long as the deposits are made by Sept. 10, 2012.

If an affected taxpayer receives a penalty notice from the IRS, the taxpayer should call the telephone number on the notice to have the IRS abate any interest and any late filing or late payment penalties that would otherwise apply. Penalties or interest will be abated only for taxpayers who have an original or extended filing, payment or deposit due date, including an extended filing or payment due date, that falls within the postponement period.

The IRS automatically identifies taxpayers located in the covered disaster area and applies automatic filing and payment relief. But affected taxpayers who reside or have a business located outside the covered disaster area must call the IRS disaster hotline at 1-866-562-5227 to request this tax relief.

Covered Disaster Area

The parishes listed above constitutes a covered disaster area for purposes of Treas. Reg. § 301.7508A-1(d)(2) and is entitled to the relief detailed below.

Affected Taxpayers

Taxpayers considered to be affected taxpayers eligible for the postponement of time to file returns, pay taxes and perform other time-sensitive acts are those taxpayers listed in Treas. Reg. § 301.7508A-1(d)(1), and include individuals who live, and businesses whose principal place of business is located, in the covered disaster area. Taxpayers not in the covered disaster area, but whose records necessary to meet a deadline listed in Treas. Reg. § 301.7508A-1(c) are in the covered disaster area, are also entitled to relief. In addition, all relief workers affiliated with a recognized government or philanthropic organization assisting in the relief activities in the covered disaster area and any individual visiting the covered disaster area who was killed or injured as a result of the disaster are entitled to relief.

Grant of Relief

Under section 7508A, the IRS gives affected taxpayers until Jan. 11, 2013, to file most tax returns (including individual, corporate, and estate and trust income tax returns; partnership returns, S corporation returns, and trust returns; estate, gift, and generation-skipping transfer tax returns; and employment and certain excise tax returns), or to make tax payments, including estimated tax payments, that have either an original or extended due date occurring on or after Aug. 26 and on or before Jan. 11, 2013.

The IRS also gives affected taxpayers until Jan. 11, 2013, to perform other time-sensitive actions described in Treas. Reg. § 301.7508A-1(c)(1) and Rev. Proc. 2007-56, 2007-34 I.R.B. 388 (Aug. 20, 2007), that are due to be performed on or after Aug. 26 and on or before Jan. 11, 2013.

This relief also includes the filing of Form 5500 series returns, in the manner described in section 8 of Rev. Proc. 2007-56. The relief described in section 17 of Rev. Proc. 2007-56, pertaining to like-kind exchanges of property, also applies to certain taxpayers who are not otherwise affected taxpayers and may include acts required to be performed before or after the period above.

The postponement of time to file and pay does not apply to information returns in the W-2, 1098, 1099 series, or to Forms 1042-S or 8027. Penalties for failure to timely file information returns can be waived under existing procedures for reasonable cause. Likewise, the postponement does not apply to employment and excise tax deposits. The IRS, however, will abate penalties for failure to make timely employment and excise tax deposits due on or after Aug. 26 and on or before Sept. 10 provided the taxpayer makes these deposits by Sept. 10.

Casualty Losses

Affected taxpayers in a federally declared disaster area have the option of claiming disaster-related casualty losses on their federal income tax return for either this year or last year. Claiming the loss on an original or amended return for last year will get the taxpayer an earlier refund, but waiting to claim the loss on this year's return could result in a greater tax saving, depending on other income factors.

Individuals may deduct personal property losses that are not covered by insurance or other reimbursements. For details, see Form 4684 and its instructions.

Affected taxpayers claiming the disaster loss on last year's return should put the Disaster Designation “LOUISIANA/HURRICANE ISAAC” at the top of the form so that the IRS can expedite the processing of the refund.

Other Relief

The IRS will waive the usual fees and expedite requests for copies of previously filed tax returns for affected taxpayers. Taxpayers should put the assigned Disaster Designation in red ink at the top of Form 4506, Request for Copy of Tax Return, or Form 4506-T, Request for Transcript of Tax Return, as appropriate, and submit it to the IRS.

Affected taxpayers who are contacted by the IRS on a collection or examination matter should explain how the disaster impacts them so that the IRS can provide appropriate consideration to their case.

Taxpayers may download forms and publications from the official IRS website, IRS.gov, or order them by calling 1-800-TAX-FORM (1-800-829-3676). The IRS toll-free number for general tax questions is 1-800-829-1040.
