*TAX INFORMATION
Depending on a company's corporate structure the tax benefit of donating excess inventory can be very advantageous, while also making a difference for people in need. You have the ability to take a tax deduction which, in some instances, can be greater than the value of the actual merchandise!

Section 170(e)(3) of the US Internal Revenue code permits regular (C) corporations to deduct the lower of:
1) The cost of the products plus one-half of the difference between the cost and the fair market selling price, or
2) Twice the cost

Section 170(e)(3) of the US Internal Revenue Code permits "S" corporations or a partnership company to earn a straight cost deduction. Consult your tax advisor to determine what the deduction would be in your case.
