Are goodwill donations tax deductible in 2018?
Yes, Goodwill donations, like all charitable donations, remain tax deductible in 2018.However, due to the new tax law, the increased standard deduction in effect will encourage many more taxpayers to take the standard deduction instead of itemizing their deductions. You can only deduct the value of charitable contributions from your taxable income if you itemize your deductions.Hence, that is why this will be the first year where many charitable contributions will no longer have a material impact on your final tax liability.Jofi Joseph, CPA
What are the best practices for getting a tax deduction when donating to Goodwill?
You should have requested a receipt from Goodwill, which is blank so that you can enter the total value of the books.  Hopefully you have an inventory of the books that were donated, especially those in mint condition (a pic would be good too), if so, go online to get the "thrift shop" value of each. However, if you use Turbo Tax or other tax preparation software the calculations can be made for you once you enter the information.
What are some of the things to know before donating your things to Goodwill or the Salvation Army and claiming a tax deduction? Is it better to sell them off or get the tax deduction?
If you are solely looking for financial return, then selling items will help you more than donating them.  You do however have to deal the your time and effort to actually sell and deliver the goods.You get a tax deduction for the fair market value of the goods donated or whatever the charity is able to sell the goods for.  This is most commonly what is referred to as thrift shop value which is typically in the range of 20% of original purchase price.  You get a tax deduction, not a credit, so if you are in a 20% effective tax bracket, then you save 20 cents of taxes for every dollar of fair market value.  So yes you are typically saving 20% of 20% of what you paid for the donated item.  You buy something for $1,000, fair market value at donation is $200 and you save $40 in tax for making the donation.You can deduct up to $500 annually with no additional reporting required.  If you donate between $500 and $5,000 then you will need to include a form 8283 with your 1040 tax return to report additional information about the donation.  If you donate goods valued at more than $5,000, you will have to have an independent third party appraisal.  If you donate a vehicle, the charity should give you a form stating the deductible value of the vehicle.Non-cash charitable donations are an itemized deduction, so unless your total itemized deductions are more than the amount of the standard deduction, then you will gain no incremental benefit from the donation.
Which form is to be filled out to avoid an income tax deduction from a bank?
Banks have to deduct TDS when interest income is more than Rs.10,000 in a year. The bank includes deposits held in all its branches to calculate this limit. But if your total income is below the taxable limit, you can submit Forms 15G and 15H to the bank requesting them not to deduct any TDS on your interest.Please remember that Form 15H is for senior citizens, those who are 60 years or older, while Form 15G is for everybody else.Form 15G and Form 15H are valid for one financial year. So you have to submit these forms every year if you are eligible. Submitting them as soon as the financial year starts will ensure the bank does not deduct any TDS on your interest income.Conditions you must fulfill to submit Form 15G:Youare an individual or HUFYou must be a Resident IndianYou should be less than 60 years oldTax calculated on your Total Income is nilThe total interest income for the year is less than the minimum exemption limit of that year, which is Rs 2,50,000 for financial year 2016-17Thanks for being here
How do tax deductions work for donations?
By giving to a formally recognized charity (normally they must file with the government taxation agency and maintain that status) your contributions are allowed to be a tax deduction. In essence what this means is that you get a discount on the amount of taxes owed because you chose to give your money to a nonprofit organization.A nonprofit organization has no owners/shareholders and it exists to serve a defined public good. It is mostly because of those two conditions that traditional business funding avenues do not work for nonprofits. In response many countries have created other incentives for people to support the work that they do. One of these is the tax deduction for your gift. There are a few caveats to these donations but in essence you must not receive any goods or services in exchange for your gift.
What tax for do I need to fill out if I make donations and invest in stocks?
The simple tax form allows deductions for charitable donations as well as any income from stocks or banks. Your gains/losses investments in stocks aren’t reported until you sell them.
How successful will states like California be by claiming the new $10,000 limit on State and Local Tax Deductions are "actually" charitable donations?
About as successful as you would be if you tried claiming that your paycheck was actually a loan that you would definitely, no lying, pay back sometime in the future, so you shouldn’t have to pay taxes on it.Back in May, Washington Post columnist Megan McArdle wrote on the creative proposals being bandied about by taxpayers (and even some government officials) in relatively high-tax states after passage of the 2022 tax reform law.…Hence the creative proposals to restore federal deductions without cutting into state and local revenue. The most popular, currently, is allowing taxpayers to make a “charitable donation” to charities approved by a lower-level government (which often look a lot like • that government) and receive, in return, a credit against the taxes they owe to that government. Since charitable donations are still deductible against your federal taxes, this keeps everyone happy.Everyone except, maybe, the IRS, which just announced its intent to write regulations on this sort of workaround. Such notices are always written in High Church Bureaucratic, and this notice is no exception. But here’s the key section:“The proposed regulations will make clear that the requirements of the Internal Revenue Code, informed by substance-over-form principles, govern the federal income tax treatment of such transfers. The proposed regulations will assist taxpayers in understanding the relationship between the federal charitable contribution deduction and the new statutory limitation on the deduction for state and local tax payments.”Let me pra translation for those who aren’t fluent in Tax. When the IRS promulgates rules about this sort of scheme, it’s going to lean heavily on the venerable Substance-Over-Form Doctrine, the IRS’s famed “one-sided sword” for disallowing new deductions. In the vernacular, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then the IRS is generally going to call it a duck. No matter how hard you insist that it is your beloved, and medically deductible, seeing-eye dog.(Emphasis added, Opinion | Wealthy blue states are in for a tax headache)I’m not a taxation expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I can assure you that IRS is filled with them. And lots of Americans have tried and failed to sneak creative solutions by IRS agents: from “sovereign citizens” that claim not to recognize the government’s authority to amateur lawyers who think the income tax is unconstitutional.It’s not going to work.
