The United States Marshals Posse, District of Arizona is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. According to the IRS, organizations described in section 501(c)(3) are commonly referred to as charitable organizations. The USMP is a charitable organization that exists to serve the public. The USMP therefore does not pay ordinary income tax and donations to the USMP are tax-deductible for those individuals and organizations that itemize their deductions. If you take the standard deduction when you file your federal income tax return then you do not get to take any special deduction for your gifts to the USMP. However if you itemize your deductions, you can deduct the amount of your gifts to the USMP. For more specific information about public charities and tax-deductible gifts please refer to IRS publication 526. For expert advice, please consult your attorney or tax advisor.
