Certain 2010 Cash Contributions for Haiti Relief Can Be Deducted As If Made on December 31, 2009 A new law allows the option of treating certain charitable contributions of money made after January 11, 2010, and before March 1, 2010, for the relief of victims in areas affected by the January 12, 2010, earthquake in Haiti as if they were made on December 31, 2009. Contributions of money include contributions made by cash, check, money order, credit card, charge card, debit card, or via cell phone. The new law was enacted after the 2009 forms, instructions, and publications had already been printed, so this alert is being added to the electronic version of certain impacted products. The contribution must be made to a qualified organization and meet all other requirements for charitable contribution deductions. However, if the contribution was made by phone or text message, a telephone bill showing the name of the donee organization, the date of the contribution, and the amount of the contribution will satisfy the recordkeeping requirement. Therefore, for example, for a $10 charitable contribution made by text message that was charged to a telephone or wireless account, a telecommunications company bill containing this information satisfies the recordkeeping requirement.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
