Many individuals, businesses and charitable organizations wish to provide assistance to the victims of Haiti's recent earthquake. The IRS has information on the IRS website on how to provide assistance to victims through a charitable organization.
The House has passed legislation allowing taxpayers to assist victims of the earthquakes in Haiti by allowing a deduction on their 2009 tax return for charitable contributions made in 2010. The Senate has similar legislation pending. NATP is monitoring this legislation and will update you when it is signed into law.
