Frequently Asked Questions

Are donations for meals and services tax deductible?

Unfortunately, donations for meals and services are not tax deductible. Money donated, other than for meals and services, is tax deductible.

Can the Otsego County Commission on Aging (OCCOA) receive charitable contributions, and can the donor, individual or business entity, use it as a deduction on their tax return?

As a component unit of Otsego County, Michigan, OCCOA is a political subdivision of the state of Michigan, which makes it a qualified organization to receive "deductible" charitable contributions.  To be deductible, the contribution must be made soley for "public purposes."  Certainly, OCCOA provides services for "public purposes."

There are, of course, various limitations on the deductibility by individuals and businesses for charitable contributions.  All donors should seek the advice of their tax preparer/consultant before assuming the level of deductibility.

I can only give a little. Is my donation still worthwhile?

Yes! Every little bit helps. A lot of little donations can add up to a sizeable donation!
