Are donations to a youth baseball team tax deductible?

Like paying for the youth team uniforms, paying for the registration fee, renting fields for practice, etc.???

    It might be. Expenses incurred doing charitable work, like using your car, are deductible as a charitable donation. Most Little League clubs are organized as nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations meaning that contributions like these are deductible. Say you coach the team and pay for things like practice field rentals, trophies for the kids, driving to games out of town and supplies like baseballs and bats. All those are deductible. If you run a business and sponsor a team, that too is deductible. But if you're talking about paying for these things for your child's participation, then, no, it's not deductible.

    If they're a 501(c)3 organization so donations are deductible, it doesn't matter where the money you donated came from. Your income from the photos is of course taxable income to you. If they're 501(c)3, the amount you donate is an itemized deduction.

    No Money you give to a sports club wouldn't be, if you were a volunteer some of it would be, donations to Public parks and recreation facilities are, I don't think you have provided enough info for me to be absolutely sure either check out the Pub 526 or talk to your tax preparer

    reading Publication 526 would help you decide -

    Also any donation deduction is itemized deduction. You will take deduction only if your itemized deductions are more than your standard deduction.

    It means that even if the donation is deductible, you may not be able to deduct it if you do not have other itemized deductions.
