Taxes...good question. The contributions are not a "write off" for the companies that participate and "donate". If it was a donation then the homeowner would be responsible for taxes. So they consider all the labor and material as a "gift" so no taxes due to the homeowner and no write off for the business that contributed materials/labor.

As a person/company that worked many hours and contributed both materials and labor it was quite different than what we had always seen on tv. How much do you think the Design Team really works on a project?

We built and installed a custom garage door and opener. Value was about 5,000. No credit given on the show. We would have to pay extra for that.

I think Karma will punch him in the face for this. He does not do anything other than video and photo ops for the show. I was disappointed. Call me niave, but I really thought they helped out on construction.

Sorry do disappoint you but I am just another human. We signed on to do this show before all the details came to light...that's how they get the local support. The story is it is all done by the local community, not much help from ABC or the "stars" that they show on the show.

To tell the truth, we did not know all the details when we signed on. It was pretty exciting in the beginning, but the details were quite different.

The family is not low income, but they do a lot for disabled kids (and 2 out of 3 of their kids are autistic). I will let you decide if they deserved it.

Quite honestly, I have not decided if it is a scam or not. You commit way before the details are available. We always work for our local families, and have done several jobs that don't get national attention. All the major work and donations are done by small, local companies. They do not give credit during the show unless you pay extra.
