"Your donation is tax deductible"

Beware of ads claiming your donations are 'tax deductible'. Not everyone can itemize their deductions and itemizing is the ONLY way to claim donations of any kind. Keep in mind, if the value of the donation along with the other allowed deductions bump you up to a higher amount than your standard deduction, your higher amount will allow you to itemize where otherwise you might not be able to. I think they should change their ads to say, "Your donation could be tax deductible."
