About Matching Gifts

Matching Gifts are not pledges but is a gift that matches the sum amount that the racer has paid for entry. The "Matching Gift" forms from corporations require us to verify that we have received a gift. If we refund that amount to a racer, we have not received a gift. Our accountant has advised us that we cannot verify a gift and then return the money. A corporation can pledge an amount and that we can return to the racer.

Are donors eligible for a tax deduction?

Yes, Tin Mountain Conservation Center is a 501(c) 3 charitable organization. Tin Mountain Conservation Center's Tax ID is 02-0353541.

Our advice from the IRS indicates the following for racers:

1. The entire cost of registration is deductible as a charitable donation for all Hillclimb riders not in the Top Notch category.

2. All Hillclimb riders in the Top Notch category may deduct any registration amount over $150.

TMCC's opinion is not a substitute for advice from a qualified tax professional.
