Privacy and Security

Privacy and Security

USA.gov doesn't collect personal information when you visit our web site unless you choose to provide that information.


Information Collected and Stored Automatically

When you visit USA.gov, we may store some or all of the following: the Internet protocol address from which you access USA.gov, date and time, the name of the web site from which you linked to USA.gov, the name of the file or words you searched, items clicked on a page, and the browser and operating system used.

This information is used to measure the number of visitors to the various sections of our site and identify system performance or problem areas. We also use this information to help us develop the site, analyze patterns of usage, and to make the site more useful. This information is not used for associating search terms or patterns of site navigation with individual users. USA.gov may anonymize and provide this information to third party entities for the purposes of research analysis. We do not share or sell visitor data for the purposes of advertising, marketing, or any other commercial purpose.


Use of Persistent Cookies

Like many websites, USA.gov uses "persistent cookie" technology. A persistent cookie is a small text file that this website places on your web browser so that it can gather anonymous summary demographic information, and remember your browser when it is used to visit our site again later—kind of like cookie crumbs! (Hence the name.) These cookies uniquely identify a browser on a computer, but never a person.  In other words, if the same person uses Chrome and Internet Explorer, two unique browser cookies will be assigned, one for each browser, so that person will be counted as two different visitors because visits are based on browsers, not computers or persons. We use persistent cookies in two ways, both of which enhance your experience on USA.gov while also protecting your privacy:

  • To remember you when your browser comes back to the site, so we don't invite you to take our customer satisfaction survey every time you visit. Our customer satisfaction survey uses a persistent cookie to ensure we won’t invite you to take a customer satisfaction survey within 90 days of completing a survey on USA.gov.
  • To get aggregate metrics on site usage to understand how people are using the site and how we can make it better. We use web metrics services to track activity on USA.gov. Government agencies only ever receive traffic statistics anonymously and in the aggregate.
  • To gather anonymous summary demographic information about our visitors such as gender, age range, and areas of interest for adults over the age of 18. We do this by using Google Demographic and Interests reports. When you visit a website that has partnered with the Google Display Network, Google stores a number in your browser using a persistent cookie to remember your visits. This number uniquely identifies a web browser, not a specific person. Browsers may be associated with a demographic category, such as gender or age range, based on the sites that were visited. This demographic information is used to help us better understand our visitors' interests and needs to more effectively develop content to serve you.

Most Internet browsers automatically accept persistent cookies. Although using persistent cookies creates a much better experience for you, this site will also work without them. If you don't want to accept cookies, you can edit your browser's options to stop accepting persistent cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. Here's how you can disable cookies and/or Google Demographic and Interests reports.


If You Send Us Personal Information

We do not collect personal information for any purpose other than to respond to your request. The only personal information that we collect is what you decide to give us by ordering publications, sending us an e-mail, or subscribing to our e-mail subscription services. If you choose to provide us with personal information — like filling out a Contact Us form, with an e-mail address and ZIP code, and submitting it to us through the website — we use that information to respond to your message, and to help get you the information you requested. Similarly, if you order a publication from us, we will collect your name, and mailing address to fulfill your order.

We only share the information you give us with another government agency if your question relates to that agency, or as otherwise required by law. USA.gov never collects information or creates individual profiles for commercial marketing.


Site Security

For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, this government computer system employs commercial software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.

Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no other attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits. Raw data logs are used for no other purposes and are scheduled for regular destruction in accordance with National Archives and Records Administration guidelines.

Unauthorized attempts to upload information or change information on this service are strictly prohibited and may be punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act.

If you click a link to an outside website, such as Facebook or YouTube, you will leave the USA.gov site and are subject to the privacy and security policies of the owners/sponsors of the outside website.


Social Media Sites

While USA.gov manages presence on social media sites (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) in order to share government information and engage with the public, we do not collect any Personally Identifiable Information through those sites. We also do not use personal information made available by the user to these third-party sites.

Free tax usa 2010 ) This is a payment a donor makes to a charity partly as a contribution and partly for goods or services. Free tax usa 2010 See Quid pro quo contribution below for an example. Free tax usa 2010 Failure to make the required disclosure may result in a penalty to the organization.

Free tax usa 2010 Your charitable organization must provide the donor a written statement informing the donor of the fair market value of the items or services it provided in exchange for the contribution. Free tax usa 2010 Generally, a written statement is required for each payment, whenever the contribution portion is over $75. Free tax usa 2010 Example. Free tax usa 2010 If a donor gives your charity $100 and receives a concert ticket valued at $40, the donor has made a quid pro quo contribution. Free tax usa 2010 In this example, the charitable part of the payment is $60. Free tax usa 2010 Even though the deductible part of the payment is not more than $75, a written statement must be filed because the total payment is more than $75. Free tax usa 2010 If your organization fails to disclose quid pro quo contributions, the organization may be subject to a penalty. Free tax usa 2010 Disclosure statement. Free tax usa 2010   The required written disclosure statement must: Inform the donor that the amount of the contribution that is deductible for federal income tax purposes is limited to the excess of any money (and the value of any property other than money) contributed by the donor over the fair market value of goods or services provided by the charity, and Provide the donor with a good faith estimate of the fair market value of the goods or services that the donor received. Free tax usa 2010 The charity must furnish the statement in connection with either the solicitation or the receipt of the quid pro quo contribution. Free tax usa 2010 If the disclosure statement is furnished in connection with a particular solicitation, it is not necessary for the organization to provide another statement when it actually receives the contribution. Free tax usa 2010   No disclosure statement is required if any of the following are true. Free tax usa 2010 The goods or services given to a donor have insubstantial value as described in Revenue Procedure 90-12, 1990-1 C. Free tax usa 2010 B. Free tax usa 2010 471, Revenue Procedure 90-12, and Revenue Procedure 92-49, 1992-1 C. Free tax usa 2010 B. Free tax usa 2010 507 (as adjusted for inflation), Revenue Procedure 92-49. Free tax usa 2010 There is no donative element involved in a particular transaction with a charity (for example, there is generally no donative element involved in a visitor's purchase from a museum gift shop). Free tax usa 2010 There is only an intangible religious benefit provided to the donor. Free tax usa 2010 The intangible religious benefit must be provided to the donor by an organization organized exclusively for religious purposes, and must be of a type that generally is not sold in a commercial transaction outside the donative context. Free tax usa 2010 For example, a donor who, for a payment, is granted admission to a religious ceremony for which there is no admission charge is provided an intangible religious benefit. Free tax usa 2010 A donor is not provided intangible religious benefits for payments made for tuition for education leading to a recognized degree, travel services, or consumer goods. Free tax usa 2010 The donor makes a payment of $75 or less per year and receives only annual membership benefits that consist of: Any rights or privileges (other than the right to purchase tickets for college athletic events) that the taxpayer can exercise often during the membership period, such as free or discounted admissions or parking or preferred access to goods or services, or Admission to events that are open only to members and the cost per person of which is within the limits for low-cost articles described in Revenue Procedure 90-12 (as adjusted for inflation), Revenue Procedure 90-12. Free tax usa 2010 Good faith estimate of fair market value (FMV). Free tax usa 2010   An organization can use any reasonable method to estimate the FMV of goods or services it provided to a donor, as long as it applies the method in good faith. Free tax usa 2010   The organization can estimate the FMV of goods or services that generally are not commercially available by using the FMV of similar or comparable goods or services. Free tax usa 2010 Goods or services may be similar or comparable even if they do not have the unique qualities of the goods or services being valued. Free tax usa 2010 Example 1. Free tax usa 2010 A charity provides a 1-hour tennis lesson with a tennis professional for the first $500 payment it receives. Free tax usa 2010 The tennis professional provides 1-hour lessons on a commercial basis for $100. Free tax usa 2010 A good faith estimate of the lesson's FMV is $100. Free tax usa 2010 Example 2. Free tax usa 2010 For a payment of $50,000, a museum allows a donor to hold a private event in a room of the museum. Free tax usa 2010 A good faith estimate of the FMV of the right to hold the event in the museum can be made by using the cost of renting a hotel ballroom with a capacity, amenities, and atmosphere comparable to the museum room, even though the hotel ballroom lacks the unique art displayed in the museum room. Free tax usa 2010 If the hotel ballroom rents for $2,500, a good faith estimate of the FMV of the right to hold the event in the museum is $2,500. Free tax usa 2010 Example 3. Free tax usa 2010 For a payment of $1,000, a charity provides an evening tour of a museum conducted by a well-known artist. Free tax usa 2010 The artist does not provide tours on a commercial basis. Free tax usa 2010 Tours of the museum normally are free to the public. Free tax usa 2010 A good faith estimate of the FMV of the evening museum tour is $0 even though it is conducted by the artist. Free tax usa 2010 Penalty for failure to disclose. Free tax usa 2010   A penalty is imposed on a charity that does not make the required disclosure of a quid pro quo contribution of more than $75. Free tax usa 2010 The penalty is $10 per contribution, not to exceed $5,000 per fundraising event or mailing. Free tax usa 2010 The charity can avoid the penalty if it can show that the failure was due to reasonable cause. Free tax usa 2010 Acknowledgment of Charitable Contributions of $250 or More A donor can deduct a charitable contribution of $250 or more only if the donor has a written acknowledgment from the charitable organization. Free tax usa 2010 The donor must get the acknowledgment by the earlier of: The date the donor files the original return for the year the contribution is made, or The due date, including extensions, for filing the return. Free tax usa 2010 The donor is responsible for requesting and obtaining the written acknowledgment from the donee. Free tax usa 2010 A charitable organization that receives a payment made as a contribution is treated as the donee organization for this purpose even if the organization (according to the donor's instructions or otherwise) distributes the amount received to one or more charities. Free tax usa 2010 Quid pro quo contribution. Free tax usa 2010   If the donee provides goods or services to the donor in exchange for the contribution (a quid pro quo contribution), the acknowledgment must include a good faith estimate of the value of the goods or services. Free tax usa 2010 See Disclosure of Quid Pro Quo Contributions earlier. Free tax usa 2010 Form of acknowledgment. Free tax usa 2010   Although there is no prescribed format for the written acknowledgment, it must provide enough information to substantiate the amount of the contribution.

Free tax usa 2010   To deduct a contribution of cash, a check, or other monetary gift (regardless of the amount), a donor must maintain a bank record or a written communication from the donee organization showing the donee's name, date, and amount of the contribution. Free tax usa 2010 In the case of a lump-sum contribution (rather than a contribution by payroll deduction) made through the Combined Federal Campaign or a similar program such as a United Way Campaign, the written communication must include the name of the donee organization that is the ultimate recipient of the charitable contribution. Free tax usa 2010 Contributions by payroll deduction. Free tax usa 2010   An organization may substantiate an employee's contribution by deduction from its payroll by: A pay stub, Form W-2, or other document showing a contribution to a donee organization, together with A pledge card or other document from the donee organization that shows its name. Free tax usa 2010   For contributions of $250 or more, the document must state that the donee organization provides no goods or services for any payroll contributions.

Free tax usa 2010   To constitute significant intervening use, the organization must actually use the vehicle to substantially further the organization's regularly conducted activities, and the use must be significant, not incidental. Free tax usa 2010 Factors in determining whether a use is a significant intervening use depend on the nature, extent, frequency, and duration.

Free tax usa 2010 Vehicles sold at auction are not sold at prices significantly below fair market value, and the IRS will not treat vehicles sold at auction as qualifying for this exception. Free tax usa 2010   The penalty for a false or fraudulent acknowledgment where the donee certifies that the vehicle will not be transferred for money, other property, or services before completion of material improvements or significant intervening use or the donee certifies that the vehicle is to be transferred to a needy individual for significantly below fair market value in furtherance of the donee's charitable purpose is the larger of $5,000 or the claimed value of the vehicle multiplied by 39.

Free tax usa 2010 To qualify for the additional charitable deduction, the donor must provide notice to the donee at the time of the contribution that the donor intends to treat the contribution as qualified intellectual property contribution for purposes of sections 170(m) and 6050L. Free tax usa 2010 Every donee organization described in section 170(c) (except a private foundation as defined in section 509(a) that is not described in section 170(b)(1)(F)) that receives or accrues net income from a charitable gift of qualified intellectual property must file Form 8899.
