Charitable contributions

Guys - is there a chart which shows by income the average charitable contribution? I did a lot of charity this year but some of it was small cash which my religious institution doesn't provide a receipt for or it's a pain to get one. I did maintain good records but would rather stay below any % point which may trigger an audit

Hi, holtaboy,


The Tax Policy Center posted this data in 2018, it's dated, and of course not published by Intuit, but it may help you.  This article also gives some information about limitations and rules around charitable giving that may help you.  With audits being a common topic of concern, Intuit also provided this article that may help.


Cheers!  Awesome about your supporting charities!
