    Is that an item you would like to be added to the Tax Planner?

    You can record a non-cash gift in Quicken by making the gift from an Asset account and the Tax Planner will include it in your YTD contributions. Then it will also show up in the Tax reports.

    Or you could enter it as an Adjustment in the Charitable Contributions section.

    I would vote this down if that option was available.  Tax rules change.  Quicken is not a tax planning program and I rather the developers focus on their core business rather than ever-changing tax rules.
