When you pass away can you request to get buried with your tzedokoh receipts? Will the burial people allow it?

Is it worth it, I know everything gets recorded by God, but I've heard stories of people asking to be buried with things. Do you take the stuff with you when you go upstairs?

    Your mitzvot have been recorded in the Book. Why would you need to be buried with your tzedokah receipts? What makes you think physical things matter? Does G-d not know you did the mitzvah of tzedokah? – ezra Mar 22 '17 at 1:25

    That's kind of the flip side of the question, why do people sometimes ask to be buried with holy objects or writings – larry909 Mar 22 '17 at 1:34

    Actually, the opposite is true: your family should keep it. Hashem knows what mitzvot you did. The IRS does not and might want proof. – Heshy Mar 22 '17 at 12:32
