If you tithe to your church with personal checks, are those tax deductible?

Thank you for using Just Answer.


The answer to your question is yes. Charitable donations to your church are tax deductible as an itemized deduction on schedule A of your personal tax return. Your personal checks will provide some evidence that you made the charitable donation, but you also need to get a receipt from your church showing how much was donated and stating that you did not receive any goods or services in return for your donation.
