WI Nonprofit Tax Deductible Donations

Wisconsin residents are earning tax deductions by donating to qualified organizations like DogsInVests. As a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization, everything donated to DogsInVests is considered charitable.

Our core mission is to support young people with autism – we achieve this goal by raising and training support dogs for that sole purpose. Once training is complete (generally after 12-18 months), our support dogs are paired with a child or young adult with autism in southeastern Wisconsin. The dogs, through their training, are able to recognize and respond to the symptoms of autism: overstimulation, feeling overwhelmed, and the display of harmful or repetitive behavior.

But it really all comes down to one thing. No matter who you are, having a trusted, four-legged companion by your side brings peace and comfort. That’s what we provide.

Can corporations make tax-deductible donations in WI?

Corporations can contribute 25% of their income. Charitable giving over 25% by a corporation may be deducted for up to five years.

What is the tax deduction limit for donations?

According to the IRS, donations to a charitable organization may be deducted up to half of a person’s adjusted gross income. The IRS says that number is calculated without consideration of net operating loss carrybacks.

Joint tax returns double the limit to account for two taxpayers.

Can I deduct non-monetary donations (dog food, supplies, etc.)?

Yes, donations of supplies like dog food, treats, and other crucial supplies for DogsInVests are tax deductible. The same rules govern the donation of both goods and money.

How do I claim tax deductions for charitable donations?

Start by filing a Schedule A form with your taxes for cash donations. For non-cash donations, also complete Form 8283. You’ll have to determine whether an itemized deduction or a standard deduction makes more financial sense.

Keep records of the donation – receipts, bank and credit card statements, etc. That way, you’ll have documented proof of the donation. If the donation is worth more than $250, the IRS may require you to receive a letter of acknowledgment from the charitable organization.

Itemized deductions vs standard deductions

The difference between itemized deductions and standard deductions is really very simple. Itemized deductions refer to an expense that can be subtracted from adjusted gross income. It lowers your taxable income, and therefore the amount of taxes you owe.

On the other hand, a standard deduction has a fixed value that changes depending on filing status.
