How do I enter donated tickets?
Although you're not allowed to claim raffle or lottery tickets as a charitable deduction, you can deduct sports or entertainment tickets you bought and later donated to a qualified charitable organization.
If you're using ItsDeductible:
- Select Items.
- Click Add (if the charity is already listed) or Add a Charity (if it's not).
- Proceed to the Find Values For Your Items screen. On that screen, click the Add it link (next to Can't find your item?).
- Enter the description, quantity, etc. For quality, you can select "High."
In TurboTax, you can select Items and choose the I'll value them option (not "Guide me"). When asked for the category, choose Other personal property and proceed.
