My wife receives no pay for the charity work she does for a local hospital. Yet she incurs expenses for traveling from home to the hospital, paying for her lunches and hiring some- one to take care of the children while she's at the hospital. Are these expenses deductible as charitable contributions? If the hospital is a qualified charitable organization, non- reimbursed out-of-pocket, automobile expenses directly at- tributable to services rendered to the hospital are deductible as a charitable contribution. Actual expenses or a standard rate of Six cents per mile may be deducted. However, the cost of lunches (unless away from home overnight) and babysitting fees are personal expenses and are not directly related and solely attributable to the rendition of charitable services. Thus, they cannot be deducted as a charitable contribution. RAPIDS THE DODGE DART FREE AUTOMATIC OFFER. NO CHARGE FOR THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION.
