More specifically, in some cases we donate gift certificates, but I'm not sure how to enter these, because it's not a payment we're making by cash, check, or credit card, and it's not really matched to any invoices. I am really confused.
I have small business and I've just started using MS Office Accounting Pro 2009, instead of Quickbooks. I need to keep track of which of my payments are actually charitable donations, as we frequently donate and it comes out of our business checking account. How can I flag all of these payments as tax deductible donations, so that I can search for and list them all easily when I do my taxes? The donations go to various different organizations, throughout the year. Thank you so much for any help, I thought it would be easier to figure this out.
