I'm looking at our 2011 charitable donations and I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this but want to make sure because I'll have to file Form 8283 if I'm wrong.One charitable expense was airfare to go volunteer with an IRS-approved nonprofit. I originally bought a plane ticket early in 2011 for a personal trip, which I had to cancel. I got a voucher for the price of the ticket (minus a service charge). Late in 2011 I used the voucher to get the ticket for the charitable trip. To me that sounds like a cash contribution, but was I really donating an airline ticket? I know that sounds like a stupid question, but we're talking taxes here so I want to make sure. Cash or noncash?--fleg
