IRS offers tax tips for "The Season of Giving"

December is traditionally a month for giving generously to charities, friends and family. But it’s also a time that can have a major impact on the tax return you’ll file in the New Year.

Here are some “Season of Giving” tips from the IRS covering everything from charity donations to refund planning:

Contribute to Qualified Charities

If you plan to take an itemized charitable deduction on your 2012 tax return, your donation must go to a qualified charity by Dec. 31. Ask the charity about its tax-exempt status.

Written thanks and other basic rules for tax-deductible donations

Thanksgiving to New Year’s is a time for holiday generosity and tax-minimizing thrift.  Last year, about 25 percent of the Ohioans who filed federal individual tax returns claimed tax deductions for charitable donations, to the tune of $4.7 billion. 

Individuals have some basic rules to follow to claim the tax savings, but they’re not alone.  Charitable organizations benefiting from the generosity and thrift of Ohio ’s tax-savvy donors also have some basic rules to follow to ensure that their donors’ contributions qualify as tax-deductible. 

By following Internal Revenue Service rules and through mutual support, taxpayers and charitable organizations both benefit.

IRS seeks volunteers for free tax prep programs in Ohio

Recruitment is underway throughout Ohio for volunteers and partner organizations for the Internal Revenue Service’s free tax preparation programs.  Volunteers must receive training and achieve certification over the next two months to be ready for the start of the 2013 tax filing season.

The IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) programs offer free tax help to seniors as well as to low-to-moderate income and disabled individuals.  Partner organizations set up free tax preparation sites in local communities, where volunteers meet with and assist qualifying taxpayers.
