Exempt Organizations Select Check: Deductibility Status Codes
In general, an individual who itemizes deductions may deduct contributions to most charitable organizations up to 50 percent of his or her adjusted gross income computed without regard to net operating loss carrybacks.
For MERCY FOR EARTH these limitations (and organizational status) are indicated as follow:
| Code|| Type of organization and use of contribution|| Deductibility limitation|
| PC || A public charity|| 50%|
Contributions must actually be paid in cash or other property before the close of an
individual’s tax year to be deductible for that tax year, whether the individual uses the cash or accrual method.
If an individual donates property other than cash to a qualified organization, the individual may generally deduct the fair market value of the property. If the property has appreciated in value, however, some adjustments may have to be made.
The rules relating to how to determine fair market value are discussed in Publication 561, Determining the Value of Donated Property. For a more comprehensive discussion of the rules covering income tax deductions for charitable contributions by individuals, see Publication 526, Charitable Contributions.
