House Passes Legislation Allowing 2009 Charitable Contribution Deduction for Haiti Relief

The House of Representatives today unanimously passed H.R. 4462, legislation that would allow charitable contributions to victims of the earthquake in Haiti to claim an itemized charitable deduction on their 2009 tax return instead of having to wait until next year to claim these deductions on their 2010 tax return.  The legislation also includes a provision allowing those who text messaged a donation the ability to use a phone bill as proof of donation.  

 

The legislation, by the way,  applies only to cash donations.
