Year of deductibility of year-end contributions
The IRS states that contributions are deductible in the year made. Checks will count as a 2022 contribution as long as they are mailed in 2022 and clear shortly thereafter. Donations made online or charged to a credit card will count as a 2022 contribution as long as they are posted in 2022. At Wrightsville Beach Baptist Church we will follow these guidelines as we want to have full integrity regarding the timeliness and cut-off of year-end contributions.
1) A check written and/or dated in December 2022 but placed in the church offering in January 2023 will be a year 2023 contribution.
2) A check written and postmarked in December 2022 is a year 2022 contribution, even if it’s not received until January 2023.
3) A check written in December 2022 but not postmarked until January 2023 is a year 2023 contribution.
4) Credit card contributions that are posted before the end of 2022 count for 2022, even if the credit card bill isn’t paid until 2023
