You can carry over your contributions that you are not able to deduct in the current tax year because they exceed your adjusted-gross-income limits. You can deduct the excess in each of the next 5 years until it is all used, but not beyond that time.

Be sure that you keep good records in case of an IRS query.
Any nonmonetary donation that is in excess of $5,000 requires a signed written appraisal by a qualified appraiser.
