A corporation can't deduct contributions that total more than 10% of its taxable income for the tax year. Refer to Pub 542 for instructions on how to figure taxable income for this purpose.  

Follow these steps to enter current cash contributions:

  1. Go to Screen 20, Deductions.
  2. Scroll down to the Contributions (Use Screen 24 to enter contribution carryovers) subsection.
  3. Enter the contribution amount in Cash (Ctrl+E).

Follow these steps to enter current noncash contributions:

  1. Go to Screen 25, Noncash Contributions (8283).
  2. Enter information about the noncash contribution in the applicable fields.

Follow these steps to enter contribution carryovers:

  1. Go to Screen 24, Contribution Carryovers.
  2. Enter the amounts carried over in the Contribution Carryovers section.
    • You can also use the Consolidated Contribution Carryover section if you're completing a consolidated return.

Charitable contributions print on Form 1120, line 19.
