#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

When I enter my charitable contributions my estimated refund doesn’t change

This page has been updated for 2018 taxes and may not apply to previous years.

 

Charitable contributions only affect your return if you itemize deductions. If you’re using the standard deduction, you won’t see a difference in your estimated refund amount when you enter your charitable contributions.

Credit Karma Tax will automatically select the larger deduction for you though you will have the option to override this selection if you wish. You should still make sure to enter your charitable contributions and any other deductions that you may qualify for.
