Would the donations be considered "net" financial resources or income?
Business Lawyer: Infolawyer, Attorney replied 7 months ago
It is income. Donations are terms of art referred to not for profit organizations. These are more gifts and resulting income. Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding "yes" or "acceptable"

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
finally do you have reference to an IRS opinion on this issue?
Business Lawyer: Infolawyer, Attorney replied 7 months ago
If the funds were used for benefit on the individual it is income. If person didn't benefit and didn't know if it then it is not. Can seek an IRS opinion letter as well on the issue.
