Important information regarding IRS Form 8283.
What is the IRS Form 8283?
Individuals, partnerships, and corporations use IRS Form 8283 to report information to the IRS about noncash charitable contributions when the amount of their contribution for all noncash gifts is more than $500. Fidelity Charitable provides donors with IRS Form 8283 when their previous year's noncash charitable contributions to Fidelity Charitable meet this criteria. These forms are generally available online or sent via U.S. mail by the end of February.
When will Fidelity Charitable send out my IRS Form 8283?
Fidelity Charitable aims to send all tax forms by the end of February. Donors and advisors will be notified when forms are available.
Where can I get my IRS Form 8283 online?

I need to do my taxes soon, how can I get the information to complete my IRS Form 8283?
You may access contribution confirmations by logging into FidelityCharitable.org. Access the “Statements & Confirmations” page under the “History” tab for official tax receipts for contributions made into the Giving Account.
Why did I get more than one 8283?
As of 2018, if you made contributions from a third-party entity, such as a trust, LLC, or partnership, you may receive more than one IRS Form 8283. SSN/TIN must match on both the contributing and receiving accounts, otherwise IRS Form 8283 will be sent via U.S. Mail to avoid privacy issues.
