TAX TIPS: Did You Donate to Help Disaster Victims?

leave a comment »

The Red Cross has collected nearly $400 million in donations for Haiti. In January 2010, the LA Times reported that 64% of adults in the U.S. either donated to Haiti or planned to.

Whether you made a $10 donation by texting “Haiti” to your wireless provider, or your corporation raised thousands on behalf of the less-fortunate, it’s important to understand the tax implications of your donation(s). Be sure to check out this page on IRS.gov that provides information to those who donated through charities.
