How do I claim charitable donations?
To claim charitable donations made this year, or carried forward from a prior year, add the Donations and Gifts section to your return. Click the search box and type “Donations” to add that section to your return. You can enter either the total of all donations, or enter each receipt individually.
Enter any amounts carried forward from prior years in the Unused donations and gifts from prior years table.
If you have a linked partner, we’ll allocate the credits to the partner who will most benefit from claiming them. You can change the allocations in the Optimization Credits and Deductions table. More information on that step is available here.
