Check your records to be sure you have the paperwork you need for charitable contributions you want to deduct on your 2013 tax return. Cash, check, and other monetary donations of any amount can be deducted only if substantiated by a bank record or written documentation from the charity. The rules require you to obtain the necessary records before you file your 2013 return.
