Donations to charity



I got married last year.  In this section of TurboTax, do we just add the amounts to we gave to particular charities?  Also do we list all the charities we gave to last year here for both of us?

Yes and yes.  If you file a Married Filing Jointly return, all of your spouse's and your donations get reported on the same tax return.

noncash donations totaling over $500 need to go on form 8283.  for cash contributions save yourselves some time.  total the amounts contributed by both that are deductible and enter as a single number. Only this single number shows up in schedule A.  if TT wants a description use cash.  the names of the charities for cash contributions are not sent to the IRS.
