“The joy is in the journey and not the destination.” When I hear this quote, I think about the roller coaster ride of entrepreneurship, where you have to enjoy the journey. I am currently the CEO and founder of Pirq, a digital loyalty and customer relationship management system for brick-and-mortar businesses. Pirq helps local businesses capture customer data and grow loyalty, increase spend amount per visit and expand the frequency of visits all through a digital punch card on the smartphone.

Excess, nonmoving inventory is a common business problem that, fortunately, also contains its own solution.

By donating that new, idle merchandise to charity, your business can earn a federal income tax deduction under Section 170 ( e )(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.

The IRS Code says that regular C corporations may deduct the cost of the inventory donated, plus half the difference between cost and fair market value.  Deductions may be up to twice-cost.
