Charitable Deductions for Tax Purposes
The CARES Act provides An Opportunity to Increase Charitable Deductions for Tax Purposes
To encourage charitable giving, the federal CARES Act of 2020 raises limits on charitable contribution deductions for tax purposes for individuals and corporations.
- Those not itemizing deductions are now permitted an “above-the-line” deduction for cash contributions up to $300 ($600 for joint filers). This effectively reduces adjusted gross income (AGI). The new deduction will be available for 2020 and 2021.
- Those who itemize can deduct up to 100% of AGI this calendar year only, up from 60%. The additional 40% must be cash contributions made directly to qualified charitable organizations, such as STG. If a greater amount is gifted, it may be "carried over" to 2021. Note that there are limitations on the first 60% of charitable giving. For example, only 30% of AGI may be in the form of appreciated assets, such as stock. As noted below, donors are advised to consult their legal and tax experts.
- Incremental tax-saving opportunities exist for IRA rollovers into Roth IRAs.
For corporations, the deduction ceiling on cash contributions is increased from 10% to 25% of AGI. This applies to 2020 gifts only.
Donors are advised to make decisions in consultation with their tax and legal advisors.
