Let’s end well to start 2021 strong.
Unique CARES Act 2020 Giving Opportunity: Through the Cares Act, those who do not itemize deductions are allowed a deduction for up to $300 in charitable giving in 2020 ($600 for married filing jointly). In 2020, this deduction is available for to people who claim a standard deduction.
Those who itemize may deduct gifts of cash to offset as much as 100% of AGI. This means that some people may reduce their 2020 federal income tax to zero.
