A living taxpayer who donates a qualified organ for transplanting
in another individual may be able to claim a credit up to $5,000
for expenses related to the donation.
In order to claim the credit, one or more of the following organs
must be donated:
- Human bone marrow
- Any part of:
- an intestine
- a kidney
- a liver
- a lung
- a pancreas
Qualified expenses are those incurred by the taxpayer or
dependent for travel, lodging or lost wages and are not
reimbursed to the taxpayer by any person. The expenses must
be directly related to the live organ donation by the taxpayer or a
dependent of the taxpayer.
Any unused credit may be carried over five years.
