Maximize the value of your bequests!
Do you know that your charitable contributions are deductible only if you itemize deductions on your income tax return Form 1040, Schedule A? To be deductible, charitable contributions must be made to qualified organizations. Remember, Payments to individuals are never deductible. There are many tax implications in making charitable contributions to organizations. You will need a professional to help you determine the proper accounting and tax treatment for your donation.
