Can I deduct donations to charity?
Yes, you can deduct charitable donations if you make them to qualified organizations and you itemize deductions. You're even allowed to deduct expenses directly related to charity work, such as mileage or parking. Keep your receipts or other documentation for all of your charitable donations with your tax records.
You're not allowed to deduct cash or property given directly to another person, family, or group that isn't a qualified organization.
The amount you can deduct is limited, depending on what you donate and the type of charity. We'll figure it out after you import your donations from ItsDeductible or manually enter them. If you can't deduct all of your donations this year, we'll see if the remainder can be carried forward to next year.
