IRS Withdraws Proposed Changes to Donor Written Acknowledgements

**Update to Previous Blog Post: Proposed Change for Donor Written Acknowledgements

Yesterday, January 7, 2016, the IRS withdrew its proposed rulemaking change for donor written acknowledgements. Per REG-138344-13, the IRS received public comments that “expressed significant concerns about donee organizations collecting and maintaining taxpayer identification numbers for purposes of the specific-use information return.”

As a reminder though, nonprofits are still required under IRC Section 170(f)(8) to provide donors a written acknowledgement for any gift over $250. Check out our blog’s other discussions on charitable contributions.
