Donor denied $25,000 charitable deduction: Here's why
from Church Law & Tax
A donor made a cash contribution of $25,000 to a religious organization. The IRS audited the donor's tax return and denied the charitable contribution deduction on the ground that it was not properly substantiated. The donor appealed to the United States Tax Court. The Tax Court agreed with the IRS. This case illustrates the consequences that can result from a church's failure to comply with the substantiation requirements for charitable contributions.
