  • CARES Act Charitable Deduction Changes
    Information regarding charitable deductions resulting from the CARES Act.

    With the recent passage of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, two important changes were made to the tax code impacting charitable deductions for 2020.

    1. For taxpayers, individuals and couples, who take the standard deduction, you may now take an above-the-line deduction of up to $300 (per filing unit) for 2020. This deduction does not apply to contributions to a Donor Advised Fund.

    2. For taxpayers who itemize their deductions, the CARES Act suspends (for 2020) the limitation on your deduction amount for charitable cash contributions. The limitation was previously set at 60% of your adjusted gross income (AGI). Again, this suspension does not apply to contributions to Donor Advised Funds.

    As always, we encourage you to consult with your tax advisor for more information.
