Charitable Contributions Subtraction

If you do not itemize deductions on your federal return, you may subtract some of your charitable contributions from your Minnesota taxable income.

Do I qualify for this subtraction?

You may qualify if both of the following apply:
  • You did not file federal Schedule A.
  • You made qualified charitable contributions over $500. Qualified charitable contributions are any contributions the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) allows as deductions. For more information, see IRS Publication 17.
If you’re married and file separate returns, you and your spouse must each make at least $500 in contributions to claim this subtraction on your returns.

How do I claim this subtraction?
