Haiti donations count as charitable deductions
Fox News is reporting that the House just passed a bill that will allow people to claim any donations to Haiti in wake of the earthquake disaster as a charitable deduction. This counts towards 2009 tax returns.
Haiti suffered another earthquake today in what sources are calling a powerful aftershock of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that hit on January 12 of this year.
Hopefully this will encourage more people to donate. Google has set up a page that includes places to donate to here.
