A form you need to fill out to claim a charitable deduction for 2018 is a big one, but not all charitable organizations and organizations that help with humanitarian relief have a simple one-page form.
To help you understand what you can do with your charity deduction, Recode’s Dan Harris takes a look at what charitable deduction forms you should fill out for 2018 and how to use them.
The IRS charity deduction forms 1.1 Do I need a form?
The charity deduction is available to you if you’re a nonprofit, but you can also claim the deduction for yourself or as a joint-filer.
You can also get a form if you are self-employed or are married to someone who works in a charity.
You’ll need the form to claim the charitable deduction on your federal tax return.
For example, you could claim the deductible on your tax return if you earn $100,000 and your spouse has $100 million in assets.
If you earn more than $200,000 a year, you’ll need a Form 1099-INT or Form 1040NR.
You could also claim a tax deduction if you owe money to the IRS and are unable to make payments because of tax obligations.
You should fill the form out for yourself and not claim the charity deduction.
You may have to pay a fee, but there’s no fee for filing a Form 8283, Form 8293, or Form 8335.
