Entering noncash contribution from Form 1098-C in Lacerte

SOLVEDby IntuitLacerte Tax110Updated July 13, 2022

To enter amounts from Form 1098-C for a noncash contribution of a motor vehicle:

  1. Go to Screen 26, Noncash Contributions (8283).
  2. Select Additional Electronic Filing Information from the left section menu.
  3. Enter a 1 in 1=1098-C, 2=equivalent.
  4. Enter other amounts under section Contributions of $5000 or Less.

If the return is marked for e-file, the program automatically generates an 8453. Lacerte marks the box Form 1098-C, Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes (or equivalent contemporaneous written acknowledgement).  If the form isn't attached as a PDF, it must be mailed with the return (if not filing electronically) or mailed with the 8453 to Austin, TX.

Steps required to attach the form as a PDF:

  1. Scan the document, if it isn't already in PDF format.
  2. Save the file where you can find it.
  3. Go to Screen 4, Electronic Filing.
  4. Select the PDF Attachment button, then Attach PDF.
  5. Select Browse to find the PDF file, then OK.
  6. Select the dropdown for Link to form (defaults to main form).
  7. Select the + next to Form 8283.
  8. Select Form 1098C.
