Pay it off or keep it mortgaged?

Most charities do not want the hassle of a mortgaged property. This can open up business tax income and they don’t want the bother or the expense. So if possible, pay off any mortgages or leans on the property before making the donation.

The Charity Sells the Property

If the charity decides to sell the property within the following three years then it has to report the sale to the IRS. If the price they got is a lot less than your deduction claim, the IRS will probably challenge your deduction. So in order to avoid any such problem, make sure your appraisal is well documented. Selling the property allows the charity to realize cash from the transaction and put it to work towards their cause.

Land Ho!

Charities don’t always have a use for the land, but Giving Center has the staff to sell it. In order to donate land it must have a clear title and you must pay off any mortgage on the land. A professional appraisal is required to determine fair market value since this is the only amount of the deduction you can take.

Transfer of land is pretty easy. Normally you work with the charities’ legal guns to draft a deed giving them ownership of the land. Our experienced representatives are prepared to handle your property donation regardless how big or small!
