At a recent planned giving conference someone mentioned that artists can now take FMV of donations (produced by them) instead of the value of materials used to make the item. True? I have looked everywhere on and cannot find any reference to the change.

Thanks for your thoughtful and thorough analysis. Good to know that sometimes my instincts are correct still.

Deductibility of Art by Artists
There have been certain bills proposed to change this, but the law is still that an artist's donation of his or her own artwork is limited to tax basis. IRC
