Should I enter the deductible value of a charitable remainder trust contribution or the dollar amount of the contribution?

You make a contribution to a charitable remainder trust in exchange, typically, for annuity payments back to you for your life, and money left over after you die goes to the charity.  The deductible contribution is the discounted present value of the "left over" money, not the full contribution.
