Disaster Relief Donations

Tools

By Eric Weisfeld

If you donated to charities in support of Superstorm Sandy victims or the families of Sandy Hook, you may not get the tax write-off you were expecting.
Turns out, a number of the groups were not legit.
If the I-R-S catches a taxpayer deducting a donation to a non-eligible organization, the filer has to pay a penalty and any unpaid taxes...as well as interest.
