Charities - Cash and Non Cash Requirements
There are many new laws for charities. Remember that for donation over $250 for the year, you must receive a letter from the charity and the letter must contain certain language, or it may not be deductible. There are additional rules for deduction $250-$500, $500-$5,000, and contributions over $5,000. Make sure to review the "Records to Keep" in IRS Publication 526. For Charitable Contributions, please review IRS Publication 526. http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p526.pdf
We recommend that if you donate non cash items to charities, please check out the Value Guide for Savation Army Donations. See link below.
