In response to the question: >are the time, money, miles, etc. that my fiance and her friend put into this considered
to be charitable contributions?<
TMFTaxes answered: >YES!!! In many cases the are all deductible,<

I am aware that you can deduct for miles, money and goods, but I never heard that you can deduct time as a charritable donation. It must get really complicated (and I've missed out on a lot of deductions! I'd better get cracking. Good hing I'm a late filer.) Are there more generalized articles on how to calculate this?
