How might a business receive a tax deduction on a in-kind donation to a 501c3 charity? How is the amount that can be deducted calculated? What are the legal requirements for a in-kind donation to be tax deductible?

In-kind donations of tangible products are generally tax-deductible. For example, if a business wants to donate used computer equipment to a charitable cause, the business can contribute the property to the charity and take a tax deduction equal to the FMV of the property at the time of donation. There are special rules, however, if the property has depreciated or appreciated in value from when the company purchased the product. Definitely consult with a tax advisor before donating property and recording the charitable contributions on the business tax return.
