As the holidays near, many taxpayers are thinking about how they want to “give back” and donate to charities. An IRS tool lets taxpayers learn if the organizations they donate to qualify for a tax deduction. The “Tax Exempt Organization Search” allows users to search for qualified tax-exempt charities. The tool provides information about an organization’s federal tax status and filings and is mobile-device-friendly. Users also can find out if a group’s tax-exempt status has been revoked. Keep in mind that you must itemize deductions on your tax return to claim a charitable deduction after giving to a qualified organization. Try out the tool: http://bit.ly/35uzbKk.
