Federal CARES Act in Response to COVID-19
As part of the COVID-19 response, the Federal Government has signed the CARES Act into law. We want to make sure you are aware of several provisions in this legislation:
- If you take the standard deduction on your 2020 tax return, you can claim a brand new “above-the-line” deduction of up to $300 for cash donations you make as an individual this year to qualified charities or $600 for married couples filing jointly.
- If you itemize on your tax return, you can deduct more of your charitable cash contributions than in a typical tax year (up to 100% of your Adjusted Gross Income).
- For corporations, the percentage limitation on the corporate income tax charitable deduction increased from 10 to 25 percent of the corporation’s taxable income for 2020.
- Always consult your tax advisor if you have questions about your eligibility for these or other tax incentives.
