Events must comply with all federal, state and local laws governing charitable fund raising, gift reporting and special events.
Tax Deductibility of Event Ticket Price
The IRS requires that all tickets, invitations or entry forms state what portion of the ticket price is tax-deductible if the price is beyond the fair market value of the event itself. For example: A cocktail dinner costs $100 per person for the entertainment, food and drink; the cost of the ticket to attend the gala is $250; only $150 of each ticket sold is tax deductible.
a. Each item of a Silent Auction should be valued at the Fair Market Value. This value must be listed on the Bid Sheet at the auction table, as well as in any printed list of the auction items.
b. Donors of the items for Silent Auctions should provide the Fair Market Value of their item/service. If the item is a ‘collectible,’ reasonable efforts should be made to assess the value.
d. Only winning bids that are over the stated Fair Market Value will receive receipt information on their charitable gift.
e. If an item is not valued, or valued as priceless, the final auction bid then establishes the item’s fair market value, therefore no portion is tax-deductible.
Raffles, Lotteries, Games of Chance
There is no charitable gift for a raffle ticket, lottery or any game of chance. No receipt will be issued for money collected through these means.
