Successful Raffles—Part 2

Be sure that you check your state as well as your local government regulatory agencies to make sure that you can legally sell raffle tickets and hold a raffle. You will find that while some states have vary simple rules others have very stringent rules, regulations  and reporting criteria that must be followed. Consult your attorney about your raffle and your raffle ticket wording, it will be well worth the fee.


Successful Raffles—Part 1

A raffle is a game of chance in which participants purchase raffle tickets in exchange for the chance to win a prize. The prize is typically determined by a random drawing of the winning raffle ticket from the pool of sold tickets. Raffles are regulated by State and local governments and the laws vary by location. Be sure that you consult your attorney or your CPA in the early planning stages of your raffle.


Raffle Tickets and Tax Rates

President Elect Donald Trump's new tax rate reduction plan is set to indirectly decrease the overall amount of charitable donations.  If you donate $100 at the current rate of 39.6% the after tax  cost of the donation is around $60. With the new rate reduction the after tax cost of the donation raises to $67.

Also the increase in the standard deduction to $15,000 will allow people to stop itemizing but they will loose their tax break on charitable contributions.

Hopefully your charitable donors give from the heart and their charity is not only a fiscal act. And remember that these tax decreases will leave people with more disposable income.

If you do notice a dip in donations think about having a raffle. We provide Raffle Tickets to a large number of Non-Profit organizations who have large scale raffles in the order of 50,000 to 100,000 raffle tickets that generate large amounts of money for their organizations.
