Tax deductions on Haiti donations

Posted by Iva Radman – email

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)--If you donated to any Haiti relief funds or plan to donate -- you may be able to write that off on your 2009 tax return.

The House just passed a bill that would allow donations made by the end of February to be deducted from 2009 returns.

It's not quite a done deal -- but the Senate is expected to vote on the measure soon. Lawmakers did this in 2005 after the tsunami.
