Marietta Charitable Deductions Information

What Are Charitable Deductions?

Many contributions you make to public charities, including churches, or other religious organizations, schools, universities or other educational institutions, as well as publicly-supported organizations such as the Red Cross, American Heart Association, etc., are considered charitable contributions. These contributions may be deductible on your tax return.

Things to Consider When Making Charitable Deductions

Making a charitable donation may qualify you for a tax deduction. Tax laws are complex. Some things to consider are whether the organization you are donating to is eligible and officially recognized as a nonprofit. Look for cash and noncash gifts because noncash contributions require you to fill out a form if it exceeds $500 per year. Keep your receipts, bills, and contact a Marietta charitable deduction attorney to simplify and maximize your charitable deductions.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances - such as being charged with a crime - where you should always seek experienced legal help.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.

How to Find the Right Attorney

  • Determine the area of law that relates to your issue. Attorneys specialize in specific practice areas around legal issues within the broad field of law.
  • Seek out recommendations from friends, family, and colleagues. A successful attorney or practice will typically have many satisfied clients.
  • Set up consultation appointments to get a better understanding of your case as well as gauge your comfort level with different attorneys. Find the attorney who is the right fit for your needs.
