Use this IRS tool to check whether your charitable donations are tax deductible

In the midst of these trying times, taxpayers may find themselves yearning to donate to a charity in support of a special cause or mission. The Tax Exempt Organization Search tool on allows users to search for tax-exempt organizations to determine if a donation made to a specific organization qualifies as a tax-deductible charitable contribution.

Here are some useful things to know about the Tax Exempt Organization Search tool:

  • It provides information about an organization’s federal tax status and its filings;

  • It is mobile-device friendly;

  • Donors can use it to confirm an organization's tax-exempt status and whether the organization is eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions;

  • Users can find out if an organization had its tax-exempt status revoked;

  • Organizations are listed under the legal name or a “doing business as” name on file with the IRS;

  • Search results can be filtered by name, Employee Identification Number (EIN), state, and country; and

  • Users may also download entire lists of organizations eligible to receive deductible contributions, auto-revoked organizations, and e-Postcard filers.

Taxpayers can also use the Interactive Tax Assistant, Can I Deduct my Charitable Contributions? to help determine if a charitable contribution is deductible.
