How do Boat Donation Programs Work?

This is from the Block Island Maritime site.

Boats donated to a charity can qualify for a significant tax deduction.

An individual or a couple filing jointly are allowed to deduct up to 50% of their adjusted gross income as charitable contributions on their Federal tax return. This would include the appraised value of a boat. Most States also recognize the charitable contribution of boats but State rules can vary and a tax professional should be consulted with regard to an individual’s specific State.

When a vessel is donated to a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, several conditions must be met in order for the donor to deduct the appraised fair market value of the vessel.
