Filing Your 2020 Tax Return

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, enacted last spring, includes a special $300 deduction designed especially for people who choose to take the standard deduction, rather than itemizing their deductions.

 

Under this new change, individual taxpayers can claim an "above-the-line" deduction of up to $300 for cash donations made to charity during 2020. This means the deduction lowers both adjusted gross income and taxable income – translating into tax savings for those making donations to qualifying tax-exempt organizations.  Click to read more and always check with your tax advisor.
