Form 8282: Return for Donee Information

How much can you claim as donations without a receipt?

There is no monetary limit on the amount of donations that you can make without a receipt, but the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) does require that you have some sort of documentation to support any claims made on your taxes. For donations of $20 or less, a cancelled cheque or a receipt from the charity indicating its name, the date of the donation, and the amount donated can be used as proof of your donation. For donations of $20 or more, you must have either a receipt from the charity or a letter from the charity that includes the same information as a receipt.

Will I get audited for charitable donations?

The answer to this question depends on a number of factors, including the amount of money donated, the type of organization donated to, and the donor's overall financial situation. Generally speaking, however, the IRS does not audit taxpayers for charitable donations unless there is reason to believe that the donations were not made for legitimate charitable purposes. Do I need to file form 8283? The answer to this question depends on the value of the donation. If the donation is valued at $500 or less, then Form 8283 is not required. However, if the donation is valued at more than $500, then Form 8283 must be filed.

Do I need proof of charitable cash contributions? Yes, you need some form of proof of your charitable donations in order to deduct them on your taxes. The most common form of proof is a bank or credit card statement, but you can also use a cancelled check, a written acknowledgement from the charity, or other documentation. Does TurboTax have form 8283? Yes, TurboTax has form 8283.
