When you do TurboTax, it asks you to provide the names and addresses of the charities you donate to. Does it send this information to the IRS when you e-file?No. The IRS doesn't want it. The exception would be if you need to file form 8283 for your non-cash charitable contributions. The name and address of those charities is a data item on that form and is part of the data sent to the IRS. What about the various worksheets?No. At least I'm pretty sure that's a NO for almost all of the worksheets. Sometimes it's necessary to file a supplemental schedule with the IRS. If the instructions to the form say you need to attach additional information, then that information is almost certainly sent to the IRS as a part of your tax return.In general, if it's on a form or on a statement that is required to be included as part of a paper return, it's also part of the data sent to the IRS when filing electronically.--Peter
