Welcome to RLC Massachusetts

Legal Liability & Tax Benefits

Receive enhanced tax savings through IRC Section 170(e)(3), through which food donors can receive enhanced tax deductions which can allow you to receive subtantially more than your general deduction. RLC can assist you with generating documentation to allow you to take these enhanced tax deductions easily.

The Federal Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act of 1996 is a federal law that provides protection from legal liability to food donors who have donated in good faith. On top of this federal law, all fifty states have passed Good Samaritan Laws on the state level that may provide additional liability protection. See here for the Massachusetts specific language on the Good Samaritan Laws.
