Claim your Haiti Relief Donations made in 2010 on your 2009 Federal tax return if you itemize deductions.

IRS - Haiti Earthquake Donations




Jan 25, 2010

The IRS is allowing people who donate to charities giving relief in Haiti the opportunity to deduct their donations for 2009 even though they donated in 2010!

You must itemize deductions to get the benefit, but you have the option of claiming the donations as an itemized deduction for 2009 or 2010.
