FEDERAL DONOR RECORDKEEPING RULE ON CHARITABLE DEDUCTION
The Pension Protection Act of 2006 included a section relative to charitable deductions.
The rules require that people claiming charitable deduction back up those deduction claims with cancelled checks; records from banks or credit card companies; or written notices from the charity or not-for-profit institution. The burden is on the donor to maintain or obtain the required records.
The parish will provide a record of contributions, upon request, which will satisfy the IRS requirements. Contributions of cash can only be used as a deduction if church envelopes are used enabling the parish to identify the donor. Please call Deneen Thomas at 609-267-0209 ext. 303
