Are registration fees for charity races tax deductable
Asked Jan 26, 2008, 02:32 PM
I ran in several races that were organized for charity events everything from battered children to scholarships funding to breast cancer. Are the registration fees for these races deductable?
"If you did not receive any kind of benefit in return for the payment of these registration fees, then yes."
Thank you so much for you lightening fast response. - I must now add to my question.
Some of these races give a packet of different advertising things from the sponsors. Things such as coupons, flyers, trial gym memberships, one had a ruler in it. Is this considered a benefit?
Also a few of the races gave you "a free t-shirt" if you sign up in time for them to order you one, would this be considered a benefit?
