NEW! 2020 Tax Benefits

The CARES Act temporarily modifies the contribution limits for individuals, allowing those who itemize to deduct qualified charitable contributions up to 100% of their adjusted gross income (usually 60%) in 2020.

Corporations may deduct qualified contributions up to 25% of their taxable income. Excess contributions can be carried forward for up to five additional years.

The CARES Act allows taxpayers claiming the standard deduction to take a charitable deduction of up to $300.

All of these changes only apply to cash contributions made to a qualified organization during the 2020 calendar year.
