The other day, I had been minding my own business on the sofa, reading the latest problem of 8DAYS after i abruptly experienced like someone was watching me. Now, I don’t want you to think I’m paranoid or anything like that, but I sometimes understand this tingle on your skin and I just know that I’m being watched, and usually not in a great way. I don’t know how people like Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr handle it. Their skins must be crawling on a regular basis.
Our benefit was that our daughter do a remarkable achievement. Is there anything we can deduct or could we’ve done things relatively diffrently to deduct all or most of the expenses? Patrick – What a nice thing you’ve done for your community, as well as for your daughter. Unfortunately, you’ve got me pretty stumped for aspects that could be deductible as charitable contributions by you.
Perhaps others will have smart thoughts. 2 above). If the public charity had a role in the event, perhaps some of your costs might be considered to have been donated to the general public charity to help it raise funds. You’ll need a written acknowledgment from these to be able to deduct any significant amount.
Let’s assume the school district is a federal government unit. In the event that you paid in excess of the fair market value of the local rental of the movie theater and cafeteria, possibly the surplus might be deductible. I’m uncertain how you’d work that valuation issue out. I am hoping you find this helpful. If we housed a foreign coach for a few months for a non-profit soccer organization, would the expenses because of this (food, etc..) be tax deductible? Is the organization a Qualified Organization (eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions)? Many nonprofits aren’t. I hope you find this helpful. Thank you for your help!
The soccer business is a qualified organization and I’ve the EIN number for other donations made. I didn’t receive any reimbursement but your right it might be difficult to separate costs for foods because although he ate a great deal it’s hard to say how much more we allocated to groceries while he stayed with us.

50 monthly you could deduct and I had been thinking if it was something I possibly could do? Sorry but yet another question, my daughter’s public high school doesn’t have buses for sport use therefore could we deduct the mls taking her and teammates to the many games? Does the institution do anything formal to indicate that parents taking participants / teammates to school occasions is a volunteer activity helping the school?
That would sure help your case. Otherwise, appears to me you’re heading to have trouble displaying that the mileage is (a) as a volunteer for the school and (b) not just a personal or family expenditure. I hope you find this helpful. The “Reason for Form” section of form 8283 instruction says to take care of out of pocket expenses for volunteering as cash efforts. That means Schedule A line 16 if you ask me. Jabax – I’d recognize. I drive my 14 season old daughter at least one time a week to do volunteer work for a qualified charity about 30 mls circular trip from our home.
