IRS deductions



Does anyone in the States know if the donations, we leave at albergues, + other Camino-related expenses, r tax deductible? Best, xm 8)




Unless you can somehow call the trip a business expense (write a book, maybe?).
Thanks Summer2005....but...how do u document "writing a book...?" Hmm...


Thanks for the link, summer2005, just read it through. Years ago if u were an educator u could travel to diff countries for cultural/prof reasons and deduct it, particularly if u worked with immigrant students and visited their countries of origin to learn about their worlds, etc. I understand that during the Reagan administration that was done away with. Still, there's got to be something we pilgrims can get a break on...no? Best, xm 8)

That is precisely the rationale beyond that provision of the tax code and it is one of the reasons that Americans give so much to charitable organizations.
