It seems we all like to complain about the government and its agencies, politicians, politics, and the list goes on. I have a cousin who seems to want to start a holy war with the DMV. But, that's not me....
I usually keep all of those rants to myself. Today I can't. I'm about to start the process of being legally robbed. Robbed? Yes, robbed? I have been looking into donating breast milk and have found that it's not a tax deductible item.
How can this be? I can donate almost any piece of worthless garbage to the Salvation Army and get a deduction, but life-sustaining breast milk doesn't qualify.
Shame on you IRS! Apparently there is a shortage of milk donations, and I can only imagine that that problem might go away if the IRS would allow people to get a deduction for their generosity.
And generosity is an understatement. People can sell breast milk for $2/oz. I've got probably 1,500oz. in my freezer right now. You do the math.
I had someone who wanted to buy milk, but I didn't want the hassle of shipping. I'm not desperate for the money, so the right thing is to just donate it. And I think I will (hence starting the robbery errrr donation process), but it's amazes me that the IRS won't recognize the charitable donation.
