Expanded Information Reporting For Charitable Giving

August 15, 2005

Abstract

The IRS does not administer well items for which it does not have information reporting. Extending information reporting to most charitable contributions would simplify life for most individual givers, improve compliance, and likely be better for the charitable sector as well. An improved information reporting for charitable contributions goes hand-in-hand with the continually improving systems of accounting that accompany the advances of information technology.
