Slow and steady .
Keeping it going
Morning all Anyone got an answer to this question please? Just wondering. Cheers.
A question about taxes - I'm guessing for those of us not in the US, we can't claim anything back on these 'donations' even though RMCH is 'international' and has branches in our own countries?
Actually, even for people in the USA, since you get something, you can't actually claim it either. My accountant told me that the rule of thumb is "If you got something, you can't write it off. The donors can write it off though, AFAIK.
$710 right now. Keep it up, boys. For those of you who aren't familiar with Globetrotter luggage, it's pretty amazing. It is made from a fiberboard that was state of the art... about 150 years ago. And it was meant for a much different type of travel than modern travel. If you are going by boat, and everything is piled nice and orderly, fiberboard is great. However, it's not going to survice the TSA, and if it does, and is in good condition, Globe-trotter luggage is luggage that says "steal me". So, a brief is the perfect thing, You can use it daily, carry it on a plane even, and you don't need to shove it into an overhead compartment.
Not to be construed as tax advice, and not to be relied upon:
You can deduct that which you paid over the FMV of the thing. However, you may only do so if you can illustrate that you knew the FMV before bidding. Which is not an issue here.
Cheers for tax advice.
FWIW I've had one of these 'new' globetrotter cases for 4-5 years now. It's my staple travelling light luggage, mostly hand carry but I have checked it in a few times, has survived quite well. Of course, I would never check in a urushi coated case
Lets keep going......$750
Let's see this go a bit higher, guys. This is a special edition of the Globe-Trotter brief, priced at 730 GBP, or over $1200 (USD) at current exchange rates.
