Ours is a community full of generosity. Taking advantage of the charitable tax deduction is just one way to enhance your own year-end giving.

The charitable provisions in the CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security Act) have been extended to include several measures to enhance your charitable giving in 2021.

  • Taxpayers who do not itemize deductions:
    Eligible for a charitable deduction of up to $600 ($300/individual) on their 2021 federal tax return
  • Taxpayers who itemize deductions:
    Lifts the deduction cap for charitable gifts of cash from 60% of adjusted gross income to 100%
  • Corporations:
    Deduction cap has been lifted for gifts of cash from 10% of taxable income to 25%

These measures do not apply to gifts to donor advised funds.
