Oy, I guess I can see that. Only doesn't that completely eliminate any tax benefit I'm supposed to receive from giving a charitable contribution? (not that I itemize often)Because my 1099-G income will offset my Schedule A contributions. My net effect will therefore be zero. And that's *only* if I itemize. If I do not itemize in the current year, but did last year, then I actually pay taxes on my contributions while receiving no tax benefit. I actually end up *paying taxes* on my charitable contribution amount.If this is true, as nice of a concept as it is, then I think I'm done giving contributions through my return.
