10 Tips for Getting the Most Out of Charitable Donations and you will find some powerful tax write-offs that can save you thousands of dollars for many years to come.


Here are some key points:

  • TIP #1: Donate Appreciated Objects The general rule is that you can deduct the full fair market value of the donation as of the date of the contribution. This is not the BASIS (what you paid for it), but the current fair market value.

 

  • TIP #2: Donate Long-Term Capital Gain Objects The amount you can deduct for a contribution of ordinary income property is generally only your basis (cost) in the property, not the full fair market value.

 

  • TIP # 3: Donate to a Public Rather Than Private Charity.

 

  • TIP #4: Make Sure the Public Charity meets the “Related Use Rule”

Luxury living to a fine art, Yazzy's at www.williamverdult.com

SofitelChina_wideweb__470x313,0.jpgBriar Jensen has a brush with opulence at a five-star property designed to pamper and please.

I'm standing behind an easel, holding crisp white rice paper that torments me with its emptiness. Black ink drips from my poised paintbrush, matched by beads of sweat on my brow. There are two things I can't do - sing and paint. To save others from embarrassment and myself from humiliation, I refrain from doing either.

However, having just interviewed Shi Qi, one of China's most celebrated artists, whose enormous nine-by-six-metre masterpiece hangs on the wall in front of me, I'm horrified to be given an impromptu art lesson.

But this is China and as they say at the Sofitel, "Anything is possible."

Adapted from: “A Portrait of the Artist, in Bits and Pieces,” by Ken Johnson

According to the New York Times Back in 1989, when SoHo was still a booming contemporary-art center, Barbara Bloom produced a memorably trenchant installation called “The Reign of Narcissism” at Jay Gorney Modern Art on Greene Street. It was in the form of a neo-Classical period room in an imaginary museum dedicated to one Barbara Bloom. There were faux-antique marble busts portraying Ms. Bloom; fine teacups watermarked with her image; a 38-volume set of “The Complete Works of Barbara Bloom”; a tombstone with a carved epitaph that said, “She traveled the world to seek beauty” and many more artifacts testifying to the transcendent qualities of a great artist.
