How much can I deduct for donating blood?

Q. Several times this year, I donate blood at the Red Cross. How much can I deduct on my tax return?

Unfortunately, there is no tax break for giving blood. However, a donation that you make to the Red Cross by cash, check or credit card can be written off as a charitable contribution.

    Any expenses he would have to perform the volunteer service would be deductable.

    ie: The mileage driving to and from the appointment, and any other incidental expenses directly associated with the activity.
