We are new nonprofit. Some of volunteers are athletes that go to events to compete to spread our message. Are they able to take deductions expenses (travel, entry fees, uniform, etc...)
Yes, the IRS does recognize their role as non-profit volunteers and I'll list some of what they can deduct from their taxable income. They can choose between deducting gas/oil used or mileage. If they don't have their own transportation they can deduct subway, bus, or taxi fare. They can also deduct food and uniform cost, and other expenses they incur and out-of-pocket costs while volunteering.
