Are you building a new home or remodeling a current home? Consider donating your good quality building materials instead of just throwing them away. You end up with a tax donation and help the planet at the same time - It’s Win-Win!!!!!
The IRS recently updated their requirements for donation deductions. All donation appraisals should be done by a certified appraiser familiar with the process. The donation value must be based on the actual items donated. See IRS Publication 526 for further information.
