Non Profit donations in controlled states

Recommended Posts

I have been contacted by multiple charity organizations lately wanting donations of spirits for events, auctions, etc. I am in North Carolina which is a control state. I would love to help these organizations but I am not sure if it is financially feasible. I know this is more of a question for my state ABC but can I just donate the spirit and pay the Fed taxes or do I need to repurchase my gin from a state ABC store? Since im not saleing it I would think I could donate it.

Thanks,

Alex Mauney

Everyone wants their cut my friend. If the state isn't getting their tax, than I can almost promise you that you aren't legal. If you have a "gift shop" and can sell, than there's a possibility that you giving it away is legal because the taxes are paid. Bottom line, if the taxes aren't paid at all levels, you have to be cautious.

Thanks. I will contact the state and see what I need to do. I just have a hard time paying again for the bottle. I dont mind paying the taxes.

Hello Charlie,

Did you ever get an answer from your state on your tax question?  I'm in VA and have the same question.

 

Thanks

Here in NC it is possible to donate to nonprofits. This issue came up during our listing meeting, and they told us how to make it possible. Call me if I can help - Gentry Lassiter, Lassiter Distilling.
