Our church was donated land and the donor wants a receipt for tax deduction. Is this legal and if so what must the receipt contain?

Receipting Land Donation
by: Bill OConnell

You should receipt the donation according to IRS Publication 561.

This pub is designed to help donors and appraisers determine the value of property (other than cash) that is given to qualified organizations, and information you must have to support the charitable contribution deduction you claim on your return.

Pub 561 is available on the IRS website.

The donor will likely need an independent appraisal.

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 =)
