CARES Act

CARES Act charitable giving incentives expire December 31, 2021! Take advantage of this opportunity today!

The CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act provides added tax incentives when you donate gifts of cash. This is GREAT NEWS for individuals planning to make charitable donations before the end of the year.

If you itemize your deductions:

Contributions to public charities are generally limited to a percentage of a taxpayer’s adjusted gross income (AGI). The CARES Act lifted the cap on annual cash contributions for those who itemize, increasing it from 60% to 100% of AGI through the end of 2021. Any excess contributions available can be carried over to the next five years.

If you take the standard deduction:

The universal charitable deduction has been given a well-deserved upgrade through the end of this year. You can take an additional deduction of up to $300 for single filers and up to $600 for married couples filing jointly.

These tax incentives are available for cash gifts to qualified public charities like DetecTogether, and are not available for gifts to donor advised funds or other supporting organizations.
