Form 8282: Donee Information Return

AAA

DEFINITION of 'Form 8282: Donee Information Return'

An IRS tax form used by organizations to report the sale or disposition of donated property to the IRS and to donors. Form 8282 is used by the original and successor organizations that received a piece of property if the property is disposed of within three years of the original donation.


If the property in question is worth less than $500 or if it is disposed of in order to fulfill the purpose of the charitable organization (e.g. school supplies distributed by an education-related charity), then the organization may not have to file Form 8282.
