Client Question: I Donated Via Text, What Proof Do I Need?

Posted by McDonald & Osborne Posted on Oct 09 2015

Question : I recently donated money to a disaster relief charity by sending a text message. What proof will I need for tax purposes?

Answer : Text message donations are routed through the cell phone company you use. The company forwards the amount you donate to the charity, and the charge appears on your bill. Therefore, the telephone bill showing the date and amount of your donation to the tax-exempt organization will serve as the proof you need.
