Japan Earthquake Aid: How to Deduct Your Charitable Donations

Today Japan was devastated. An 8.9 earthquake triggered a tsunami and aftershocks that has created a massive amount of damage to the island Nation.

This earthquake is the strongest on record to ever hit Japan, and one of the fifth-strongest on the world record. The results are obviously catastrophic.

The deaths are in the hundreds, and the country will need relief for months to come.

The best way to donate to Japan Relief efforts is through The American Red Cross.

Your charitable contribution is tax deductible, but in order to qualify you must donate to a charity that is registered in the U.S. as a charitable organization.
