It may be difficult, if not impossible, to establish the fair market value of one-of-a-kind gifts, such as teacher or staff outings, artwork, autographed sports memorabilia, or similarly unique items. In the absence of any reliable fair market value or regulations to implement the 1993 tax law, the IRS is likely to say that the purchase price is the fair market value. In this situation, no part of the purchase price would be considered a deductible charitable contribution.
