Charitable Giving Incentives as a Result of COVID-19
To encourage charitable giving this year, the CARES Act has created a number of tax incentives, including an “above the line” universal deduction of $300 for cash charitable contributions in 2020. You can claim this deduction without itemizing. Additionally, the CARES Act has increased tax deductible individual cash donations from 60% to 100% of AGI (Adjusted Gross Income). For businesses, the new law also increases the limit for cash charitable contributions from 10% to 25% of a corporation’s taxable income. Please check with the IRS or your tax advisor to find out more.
