It’s the time of year when taxpayers are thinking about making their holiday or year-end charitable contributions.
Make sure you’re able to deduct your donations by getting the necessary paperwork. For donations both big and small, get a record of giving or a receipt. Cancelled checks and credit card statements work as well.
If you donate clothes or household items, they must be in good condition.
Your donation must go to a qualified charity or house of worship to be deductible.
