ItsDeductible allows you to enter charitable donations throughout the year to keep track of tax deductions using a patented system that calculates the fair market value of donated items, according to the product website.
To set up an ItsDeductible account, enter your name, e-mail address, tax-filing status and income bracket. As you donate items, enter the name of the charity, date of donation, and category of donation, then input the individual items donated. ItsDeductible automatically tallies the value of your donations according to its database of average eBay sales prices. You can also log cash contributions and mileage driven for charity purposes. ItsDeductible automatically computes your mileage deduction based on current IRS regulations, according to SoundMindInvesting.com. You can print reports, so you don't need to use TurboTax to prepare your taxes in order to use ItsDeductible.
