How would you treat QCD contributions to General Fund

by Kevin

How would you treat and report QCD (Qualified Charitable Distribution) that go to the general fund.

In our contribution tracking software the general fund is marked as tax deductible and all contributions to that appear on the givers statement as tax deductible.

However, as I understand QCDs they are not tax deductible because it would count it as twice(reducing income and then the deduction).

Same QCD question here

I have the exact same question for our statement reporting. I also wish the financial institutions issuing the contribution check would provide better consistency and documentation... they are all over the board.
