I want to claim my charitable contributions this year and I don't know what answer to give to the question of overriding the optimization option.

TurboTax automatically optimizes your donation contributions for the best outcome on your federal taxes. In some cases, this will still result in a small tax payable because of provincial calculations.

Some people choose to override the optimization to reduce their tax payable in the current year, rather than carrying forward the difference to a future year which is more optimal in the long term.

If you're not confident in overriding the optimization, just leave it as is.
