I am a software developer building a website that will allow people to make donations to one of several charities. When a donation is made, I would like to automatically send to my users 2 things:
- A receipt of their donation/financial transaction; and
- Some sort of tax form that they can use to claim as a deduction or something similar
Although this question forced me to pick State or Federal, if there are different tax forms I need to send for different states I am interested in knowing what those are too.
So basically here are my questions:
1) What are the different tax forms I would need to send?
2) What are my options if, say, they make a donation through their credit card and then dispute the claim (and the credit card vendor reverses the charge)? Now they have a tax form (that we automatically emailed them) that says they made a donation when in fact they did not!
Thanks in advance.
