CARES Act

Overview of Charitable Deduction Tax Changes for 2020

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act went into effect March 27, 2020, and  provides tax relief for donors, which is added incentive to donate to nonprofits like Tabitha.

Benefits include:

$300 Above Standard Deduction*

New in 2020, most taxpayers can take another $300 over the standard deduction for cash contributions to charities. In 2018, more than 90% of tax payers took the standard deduction rather than itemizing.

Limits Raised for Charitable Deductions*

Individuals
Taxpayers who itemize are able to deduct donations up to 100% of their Adjusted Gross Income (previous limit was 60%), effectively eliminating their federal tax liability in 2020.

Corporations
In 2020, corporations can deduct up to 25% of the tax payer’s taxable income for cash donations to charities (up from 10% previously).

Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) Waived

The Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) is temporarily suspended for the 2020 tax year.
