charitable contribution credit


I have already spoken with tech about the credit.  The file was sanitized and sent to Intuit. 

The credit comes on the 1040 worksheet and/or Form 1040, by way of the Schedule A, Gifts to Charity.  Schedule 1 doesn't have a line for charitable contribution credit. 

The 1040 worksheet and Form 1040 shows "total adjustments to income."

Schedule 1 show "adjustments to income."

2 Year Comparison uses "adjustments to income."

"Total" is the keyword here according to Intuit and/or IRS.

The 2 Year Comparison, Adjustments to Income, is pulling from Schedule 1only.

When you have contributions on Schedule A, it carries it to the 1040 Worksheet, Lines 8-11. You are then prompted to enter either $150 or $300 for the charitable contribution credit.

I understand the IRS has the final say, but I would like to see the 2 Year Comparison to reflect total adjustments to income. The comparison is a good tool to use and actually the Difference column doesn't reflect true in comparison of 2 years for the Adjustments to Income line.

I don't feel like I should have to "override" this field on the 2 Year Comparison W

Are you asking that an above-the-line credit be treated the same as a deduction or other type of adjustment that is subject to phase out or limitation? It's hard to identify the exact idea you would like to have support for.

The first year with QBI, the 2 year comparison was wonky too. 

Don't hold your breath for them to make changes for this small adjustment, likely be fixed for 2021.

What is "charitable contribution credit?"

I think OP means the $300 deduction.
