  • Tax information — IRS deductibility for U.S. taxpayers:
         What mission trip participants from the U.S.A. pay for their expenses while they are serving as volunteers with a non-profit organization is considered a tax deductible contribution. The Internal Revenue Service has allowed people to deduct out-of-pocket expenses directly related to voluntary service (including lodging and meals when an overnight stay is involved). To be sure you are getting the right tax deduction, check with your professional tax attorney or preparer.
         The monetary value of your time is not deductible.
