You have to be registered as a non-profit organization to have donations given to you be taz deductible. Its a lot of paperwork, there'd be officials looking into the organization, and there'd be records of who is making donations. Not going to work..

>>last fundraiser,, I abstained, cuz first I'm poor,, plus I don't really like giving away money unless is tax deductable,,

a 5-10 dollar donation isnt gonna make a difference on your taxes anyway....

gross income - deductions = taxable ammount

not

return + deductions = return

there.. the first example was a bit off..

yeah... costs of registering a non profit ,, 5-10 dollars depending on state,, costs to set up an american representative,, commision based,, costs of incorporation, in the case that 4 people cannot be organized to trust each other, 500-10000+ government investigation into non profits for legall activities like non profit donations to keep an informational website running.. non existant. you ever ran one dj? Recently I worked for a Canadian based charity, run by an samoan in Hawaii. Another one was a phillpino charity run by an american an Hawaii, I have done alot of research on non profits,, so is difficult to understand,, thas why i started this thread.

I'm no tax specialist either,, but I've studied taxes,, I am able to do tax work like this, seems like my non profit been around too long without being active,, guess I'm too lazy. I don't understand what you are trying to say,, tax deductable is tax deductable,, I don't know how canadia works though.

We are not non-profit, otherwise your idea would be valid.

But we are not, so sorry

Didn't buy a non-profit webpage, the Shroomery has always been .org since Ythan created it. But it was never a non profit, and it probably never will be.

There are a lot of sites with .org that are not non profit, in fact I would guess most .org sites are not non profit...
