What to do if not asked about charitable donations

You have two options:

  1. Enter your charitable donations in our free It's Deductible program which is available year-round. When tax time comes, simply import your donations from ItsDeductible into TurboTax.

or

      2. Manually enter your charitable donations directly into TurboTax (instructions below).

  1. Open (continue) your return in TurboTax.
  2. In the search box, search for donations and then select the "Jump to" link in the search results.
  3. Answer Yes to Did you make any donations to charity?
  4. Answer No to Do you have an account with ItsDeductible Online?
  5. On the next screen, answer Yes to enter your donations for 2017.
  6. Continue with the onscreen instructions.

Either way, you'll need TurboTax Deluxe (or higher), as our Free Edition and Basic versions don't support the Schedule A that's needed to report charitable contributions.
