Green Donation Consultants has worked with countless commercial clients in navigating them through the entire process.
The first step is to choose an approved and qualified 501 (C) 3 charity that accepts building materials that will result from deconstruction. We can assist you in locating an appropriate charity, or you can choose one from the list provided on the official IRS website.
Once you have chosen a non-profit, the commercial property will be deconstructed by a team of contractors. Typically the non-profit will have their own deconstruction team or will be able to arrange a crew of workers to deconstruct the property.
After the deconstruction is complete, you will need to file your return along with a Qualified Appraisal. The IRS requires an appraisal to be made by a Qualified Appraiser for any donation with a fair market value of over $5,000. The donation value can quickly accumulate with commercial properties, so it is crucial that you have an experienced appraiser on your side.
