Gifts of Property

by Pisces

How do we handle gifts of property to the church such as car, boat, house?


There are special IRS requirements for contributions of autos, boats, and airplanes.

There are also special requirements for donated property over $5000.

These requirements are too detailed to go into here as they include special instructions on what to do if you sell the property or if you keep it.

You can look up these instructions on the IRS website or you can just purchase my ebook "Church Contributions" that covers all these requirements:-)

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.

Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
