Please Read Carefully!
If you intend to itemize your personal income tax deductions for the year 2021, the IRS requires that you substantiate your charitable donations with either cancelled checks or a written receipt. IRS Publication 526 requires that any single donation in the amount of $250 or more be substantiated by a written receipt.
Accordingly, if you made a single donation during 2021 of $250 or more, you do not need to request a written receipt. Calvary Chapel will automatically send you a written receipt listing all donations made during 2021.

Calvary Chapel will attempt to send out all requested written receipts by January 31, 2022.
Reminder: If you will be relying upon your written receipt to substantiate your charitable donations for 2021, the IRS requires that you wait upon filing your return until you are in possession of all your receipts.
Note to ministry volunteers: If you choose to itemize your deductions, don’t forget that certain items such as mileage and un-reimbursed expenses may be deducted. Please consult with your tax advisor for specific allowances.
