Under current tax law, donors who wish to receive a tax deduction for gifts over $500 but less than $5,000, must file a completed IRS Form 8283 which must then be signed by UBCF’s director. For gifts exceeding $5,000 the donor must secure a formal appraisal to accompany filing IRS Form 8283. The value of the gift should be determined by the donor prior to transfer to UBCF. If necessary (for gifts valued at over $5000), a copy of the appraisal should also be submitted to UBCF.  Information on IRS Form 8283 (the form and instructions on filling out the form) can be found at:  www.irs.gov/uac/Form-8283,-Noncash-Charitable-Contributions IRS law prohibits the United Breast Cancer Foundation and other staff from appraising materials or UBCF paying for or arranging for appraisals. Pertinent information is available in IRS Publication No. 561 “Determining the Value of Donated Property”. Because tax laws change frequently, it is advisable that donors seek professional tax or estate counsel prior to making a gift.
