Tax Information for Charitable Contributions

Tax Deduction

You can receive a tax deduction worth up to two times the cost of your donation. For regular C corporations, your deduction is equal to the cost of the inventory donated, plus half the difference between the cost and fair market-selling price, not to exceed twice the cost. Please consult with your accountant for tax advice.

Cost = $10
Selling price = $30
Half the difference = $10
Deduction = $20
