Tax Deduction Information
Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We will provide you with a receipt for tax deduction purposes, as well as an acknowledgement letter with our tax exempt status and tax ID (42-1580163).
The Donor is advised that if a tax deduction on a gift is to be taken, the Internal Revenue Service has regulations for filing tax-deductible contributions valued at $250 or more. If the value of the donation is greater than $500.00, Habitat staff is required to sign the IRS Form 8283 acknowledging receipt of the gift. To be acceptable to the IRS, the appraisal must be made no more than 60 days before the date of the contribution and before the due date of the tax return.
The Donor is asked to present the appraisal and completed IRS Form 8283 to Habitat at the time of the gift. The Form will be returned to the Donor with proper signature.
