Have you actually claimed pro-bono work on your taxes?
I used to do a fair bit of charity work and how it works up here (Canada) is that you do the work then you get a tax receipt that you can claim. The twist is that you have to record the income as if you made the money then donated it to charity. If you never record the income it's too big a tax loophole for the gov't to leave open.
so..I do $3000 worth of work and get a receipt for $3000 and I also have to record $3000 in income. That's the beauty of double entry accounting :)
Edited for spelling.
On an interesting note, I don't know how many here barter but in the U.S., if you accept barter for services, then for tax purposes, you list out the value of your services in US$ but it essentially amounts to a wash. (You still gotta list, though.)
Hope this helps
