How do I enter my 2023 charitable donations in TurboTax?

SOLVEDby TurboTax2632Updated 6 days ago

You can deduct charitable donations if you make them to qualified organizations and you itemize your deductions.

To itemize, you need to:

  • Keep track of what you contributed to charity during the year
  • Maintain supporting documentation, such as receipts

That might sound like a lot of recordkeeping, but it can pay off if your total itemized deductions are higher than the standard deduction.

For tax year 2023, the standard deduction is:

  • Single taxpayers: $13,850
  • Married taxpayers filing a joint return: $27,700
  • Heads of household: $20,800
