Year End Giving

Three New tax breaks under the CARES Act for 2020:
  • Increased Deduction for Individual Cash Donations: Up to 100% of AGI (Adjusted Gross Income) is deductible in 2020. Historically this was limited at 60% of AGI.
  • Increased Deduction for Corporate Cash Donations: Up to 25% of taxable income can be deducted for charitable cash contributions, historically it was limited to 10%.
  • $300 Universal Deduction for any Charitable Cash Contribution: Non-itemizers can now deduct $300 for cash contributions, $600 for married couples filing jointly.

So what is it when you’re married filing jointly? $300 or $600? The attached article provides clarity on this somewhat confusing aspect of the C.A.R.E.S. act. Please click here for the article

Opportunities to give…and to receive. A nice little plus on getting the tax break.
Please consult with your tax advisor for specific advice relative to your personal tax situation.
