The average tithe among regular American churchgoers is around 3% of annual income, or so I've heard. If you assume that everyone in Mississippi tithes at this rate and that nobody in Massachusetts tithes, Mississippi still comes out ahead.

Why would you want to exclude tithing?

Charitable contributions are charitable contributions, whether you're giving to a church, or any other organization, you're still GIVING your own income of your own free will and choice to something you believe in. Its an act of selflessness and charity.

Yes they are.

Individual contributions of less than $250 do not need a receipt for tax purposes.

I would ask a business administrator at your church if they provide receipts on an annual basis.

I would say the cost of your upcoming trip might be deductible as well.

tithing is charitable contribution, but u dont get a wrist band.
some claim to receive blessings, never missing the money.

while others claim to get vivilfied by some on the left for being a believer.
it's all so interesting.

Well, the following statement:

Quote:
Does "giving to charity" in this case include money given to churches? I'm wondering if these results aren't due to the states at the top being more religous than the states at the bottom, and thus giving lots of their money to their church like good churchgoers. I'd be interested in seeing a similar ranking that excludes churches and only includes charities that are non-religious affiliated
suggests that giving to religious organizations is not on the same par as giving to other charitable organizations.
