June 26, 2009, Newsletter Issue #155: Charity Must Provide Receipt for RV Donation

Tip of the Week

When you donate an RV that is valued at more than $500, ask for a receipt.
You should get the receipt when you transfer the donated RV to the organization, and you will need the receipt when filing your taxes to get a write-off. The receipt must contain:
* Your name and taxpayer identification number
* Vehicle identification number, or VIN
* Date of the contribution.
It must also state that the charity did not provide any services for the donation.
