Can a corporation pay an employee to do work for government?=========>I think so; however it depends on the state employment law.
My boss is also an elected County official. He hires people to do work for his County office, but puts them on his corporation's books. Essentially, he is making a donation to the County of his employee's services. How is this recorded, and is it deductible as a charitable donation=========>> Charitable contributions to governmental units are tax-deductible o donors. Due to bad economic condition,. Cash donations to charities or other organization, political organization or etc dropped.So, companies donate their employees' time, advice and service instead of cash. Those donations rose according to the survey. But Only certain types of contributions, mostly CASH donation, qualify for a deduction for the C corp. on its corp return; in the case of volunteered services, they are not deductible. You can, however, deduct the cost of any expenses incurred while volunteering ,supplies you purchased, for example or etc. however, donations of goods, services, or property are deductible on the corp’s return. There are limits to how much a corporation can donate to charity. The donation cannot be more than 10 %of the company’s annual taxable income.
