Q: A small nonprofit asked me to set up a Web site for their organization. If I don't charge any fees, can I deduct my services as a charitable contribution? G.R., New York, N.Y.

A: You can't deduct the value of services you provide to a charitable organization, even if you're donating services that are similar to your general business. But if you receive payment for the Web-site work and donate those fees back to the nonprofit, you can deduct that cash contribution. Tip: You can deduct any out-of-pocket expenses made in connection with your Web-site service for the nonprofit (e.g., research expenses, hardware, etc.).
