How do I enter my charitable donations in TurboTax?

You have two options:

  1. Enter your charitable donations in our free ItsDeductible program which is available year-round. When tax time comes, simply import your donations from ItsDeductible into TurboTax.
  2. Manually enter your charitable donations directly into TurboTax (instructions below).

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.

How to manually enter your donations in TurboTax

  1. Open (continue) your return in TurboTax.
  2. In the search box, search for donations and then click the "Jump to" link in the search results.
  3. Answer Yes to Did you make any donations to charity?
  4. On the next screen, answer Yes if you want to import your donations from ItsDeductible; otherwise answer No.
  5. Continue with the onscreen instructions.
