Where can I enter a charitable donation to a charity in England? When I entered Canadian donations, the page said that I would be able to enter other donations later.

Answer

I took a look at the language around charitable contributions to see if the UK company would qualify. Here it is.

You can claim a tax credit based on the eligible amount of your gift to a qualified donee. Qualified donees are:

  • registered charities;
  • registered Canadian amateur athletic associations;
  • registered national arts service organizations;
  • registered housing corporations resident in Canada set up only to provide low-cost housing for the aged;
  • registered municipalities in Canada;
  • registered municipal or public bodies performing a function of government in Canada;
  • the United Nations and its agencies;
  • registered universities outside Canada that are prescribed to be universities the student body of which ordinarily includes students from Canada;
  • Her Majesty in Right of Canada, or a province, or a territory; and
  • registered foreign charitable organizations to which Her Majesty in Right of Canada has made a gift.
Note

To further assist donors in determining which organizations may issue official donation receipts, qualified donees must appear on the publicly available list that we maintain at Charities Listings, and Other organizations that can issue donation receipts (qualified donees). The only exceptions are the United Nations and its agencies, andHer Majesty in Right of Canada, or a province or territory.

See Pamphlet P113, Gifts and Income Tax, for more information about:
  • non-qualifying gifts
  • gifts to U.S. charities
  • gifts to Canada, a province or a territory
  • gifts of ecologically sensitive land
  • gifts of certified cultural property


If it qualifies it will be under the deductions that you will be able to enter this amount.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
