If this gets moved, please let me know where. I have a question for anyone who knows about taxes and charitable fundraising. I am doing a fundraiser on my own for MDA (doing a 50/50 raffle) and was wondering how that works with taxes? What I mean is...let's say I sell all 2,000 tickets. The total pot is $2,000. Now let's say Jane Smith wins the raffle so she gets 1/2 the pot ($1,000) with the other half going to MDA. Do I have to do anything on my taxes to show that or is that just the responsiblity of the winner? Just curious so I can be prepared. Also, does anyone know if I have to get legal permission from someone to sell the raffle tickets or can I just do it?
