He donated one of the structures, a carriage house, to a local Nantucket nonprofit. After the client claimed a tax deduction for the donation, the IRS challenged the deduction for lack of “donative intent.” The brief article details the widespread misconception that a donation of property to a 501(c)(3) charity will automatically be treated by the IRS as having requisite donative intent.
