Is my reward tax deductible?
Our focus is to share stories of people who show extraordinary acts of kindness and give audiences a chance to reward them. We're not in the position to provide tax advice since everyone's situation is different. Rewards on WorldRewardsYou are considered to be 'personal gifts' which are not taxed as income in the US. Donations made to registered non-profits or charities may be eligible for a tax deduction. Again, every situation is different so please consult with a tax professional in your area.
