Under current tax laws, only the amount of your contribution that exceeds the amount of any goods provided to you is tax-deductible as a charitable contribution. If you requested a thank-you gift such as a program DVD, book, or any other item, the fair-market value of that item is not tax-deductible. IRA qualified charitable distributions are acknowledged at the time of donation and do not qualify for the KCTS 9 tax receipt. Donations made via third party affiliations (such as Eventbright, and Washington Gives) are tax receipted by those entities and not KCTS 9. Please note the IRS does not allow for any goods or services to be transferred to you in exchange for a contribution from your IRA; however, your KCTS 9/Crosscut membership will be continued. You may also want to consult your tax advisor with any further questions.
