Charitable Contribution: Athletic Events

For all you Oregon DUCKS contributors, this deduction is for you!

If you make a payment for the RIGHT to guy tickets to an athletic event (like donating every year to get better seats to the game) you can deduct 80% of the payment as a charitable contribution.

If any part of that payment is for tickets (rather than just the right), that part is not deductible. But the remaining amount you can deduct 80%.
