Should we report in-kind contributions of property as contributions in the public support table of Schedule A, Form 990? If so, how should these contributions be valued?
In-kind contributions of property (but not of services) should be reported on--
- Line 1 of Parts II and III of Schedule A;
- Form 990, Part VIII line 1g;
- Schedule B, Part II;
- Schedule M, column (c) if applicable.
Form 990 filers generally may use any reasonable method to determine or estimate the value of these non-cash contributions. Schedule B sets forth special instructions for valuing marketable securities. Schedule M requires reporting of the method for determining revenue attributable to different categories of non-cash contributions.
