How-to: Add ‘Fair Market Value’ to Auction Winners' Receipts

Turn Auction winners' receipts into tax receipts by adding the fair market value to each Auction item.

Fair market value (FMV) is the price an item would sell for in the open market. When bidding on Auction items, people often pay more than the fair market value for an item because the proceeds go to a charitable cause. Only the amount paid above FMV is considered tax-deductible

Adding the FMV to your Auction items either before or during your Auction can help you save time in the long run, since you won't need to issue tax receipts to winners. All winners receive an email receipt when the Auction ends, and if you’ve already designated the FMV for each item, this email acts as a tax receipt.
