Can you really claim tax deductions if you do not have a receipt? 2 Answers as of November 10, 2010

Can you really claim tax deductions if you do not have a receipt? My experience with the IRS makes me highly doubtful that this is true. Do you have to go to court to get a deduction without a receipt or whatever?
