Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello, my name is***** goal is to give you a complete & accurate answer. I am working on your request now & I will respond as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, that is not the case. Here's a summary of the issue as described from the IRS Publication 526 on Charitable Contributions:
The charitable write-off rules generally don't treat donations of partial property interests, which include leasing your property rent-free or below market rent, to a charity, as a charitable contribution. Typically, charities must own the property as a donation rather than just having a right to use it rent-free or at a reduced rent.
Here's a link to Publication 526 if you would like to investigate the specific rules & requirements on Charitable Contributions, but there is no allowable way for a landlord to take a Charitable Contribution Deduction for renting his property to a charity for less than the fair market rent of the property.
Do you have any follow-up questions or are you having any difficulties with our rating system?
I ask because sometimes it seems to act up and is confusing to customers.
I would appreciate it if you would take a moment to rate my response as that is the only way I will receive my share of the payment that you have already made to the site.
Otherwise I receive nothing for my efforts on your behalf.
Thanks very much,
Just checking in.....................
I'd like to close out this question before the end of the month, if possible.
