A tax-deductible monetary donation given to a non-profit. Did not get a letter or receipt.The company name and the amount is on the credit card statement. Would this suffice to substantiate the tax deduction for tax return? The organization with the tax ID is listed in the IRS list of tax exempt organizations.
I don’t know the real answer but in my mind, a credit card statement is like a bunch of medical bills that you may or may not pay. Perhaps the combination of the billing statement from cc along w/ the next one showing payment might suffice.
Easy enough to nag the charity for a receipt though……..they should be able to see the gift in their records and send out a (nother) receipt. Occasionally it takes 2 reminders. More than that and you might wonder why you are giving to them………..
I think the billing statement along with the statement that shows payment, as you say, might suffice.
I hesitate to ask for a receipt; it’s a small organization led by a new person, with a very limited staff.
and it’s only 1 page long! I forgot that you might have “bought” something from them so the cc statement only proves that you gave them some $$$. The receipt is supposed to include those words
that you got nothing substantial back.
