I've been asked to repeat the tax information for those who itemize.
Lunches: $30 is $8.25,
$60 is $37.
Dues - $40.00, 100% as this all goes to Scholarships
Silent Auctions and Raffles that you win - zip (you received something in return)
Donations to monthly charities are 100% tax deductible ( must retain receipt )
If you track mileage for your volunteer work, that is deductible $00.14/ mile
Donations of food for events is 100% deductible (again, keep the receipt).
If you are a service provider, you may deduct only the cost of the food/supplies. Not the service.
Donations of "in-kind" gifts such as books/handbags etc. The value here is up to the donor to establish. The PAWC may only acknowledge an actual value in dollars although we may provide a Thank You letter for in-kind gifts for tax filing purposes. (Note: receipts are passed out at the Book Sale in March for those donations)
Hope you find this useful.
