SweetieJean, when using this link, I entered my log in info, and started to add charity items.  When I clicked on: add item to my donation, i get a spinner for many minutes.  I have to close out of link and go back in.  It saves it, however, I can't use it after entering each item...?

@traceyawallace

In the "Classic view?   OR on the "New" itsDeductible View?

I have no similar problems entering a variety of different category items with the "classic" and the Chrome browser....the spinner only comes up for a moment.

Things to try.
1)  Make sure you are not logged into any TurboTax web pages on any other tab.
2)  Try the same thing with the  Edge or IE 11 browsers
3)  I get really-slow responses on everything when my W10 system is busy downloading updates in the background.....there's a variety of ways to check for that

Chrome is not working with this!  Edge worked fine, thanks for the info!  Using Windows 10, yikes...hope this is not a sign of things to come.

I've had some occasional strange responses with all browsers every 3-6 months, where had to go into the browser's tools and delete cookies, or recent History before things would work right......

The donation module inside the desktop version of Turbotax (CD or download) is a yearly thing, you'll have to wait until you buy the program. 

ItsDeductible Online is a web based donation tracker you can use during the year, and year over year, and import the data into your tax return.  One note, however, the programmers have been changing the interface and a lot of people hate the new version.  Give it a try, but you can always fall back on the module in the program itself.

So entering my deductions here will upload my contributions into the new CD when it comes out in the next month or so??

yes...your "charitable" contributions will be able to download into your tax file.

BUT
After you create an ItsDeductible account, Use the directions SweetieJean posted to make yoru entries, because the main new front-end interface is miserable...The charity info you enter is still recorded in the exact same database, it's just that the software for entering the data is better in the "classic" version.

Keep a separate spreadsheet listing anyhow, just in case you have problems later.  You do need to keep any records and receipts you have for your donations in any case.

Of course, it's always remotely possible that TTX will trash the whole ItsDed online setup....which would result in a lot of screaming and bad press, but they don't let any of us users "in" on those decisions.

@traceyawallace if you use ItsDeductible Online with the CD-based software, when you get to the charity section you will see a screen that says "transfer from ItsDeductible online or enter on my own" and you would choose transfer.  After transferring, you can add additional items, but you don't want to transfer from online more than once since it may do unpredictable things to your previous information.
