Qualifying for the Charitable Deduction


What is a qualified organization?

For income tax purposes, charitable contributions must be to a U.S. charity, with exceptions for certain Canadian, Mexican, or Israeli organizations covered by treaties. For estate tax purposes, gifts to foreign entities are deductible as long as used for the purposes set forth in the Code and Regs and meets certain other specified requirements. For gift tax purposes, certain restrictions apply to donors who are not U.S. citizens and are not U.S. residents. This video reviews what makes a qualified organization and discusses donations of property other than cash and deducting partial interests.
