Q. I have a Florida time share that I cannot seem to give away. Is it possible to donate this to a charity and at least get a charitable donation for it?
A. Possible, yes, practical - to be determined. You will need to retain a certified appraiser to obtain a written valuation of the property. Then, depending on the Fair Market Value (FMV) and your cost basis, the type of charity, etc. you may or may not have a worthwhile deduction. Prior to going to this expense and trouble, I would first determine if there is a charitable organization willing to receive your gift. You may have a real challenge on your hands. Good luck!
