Two aspects of the CARES Act that help both nonprofits like MPF and donors:
- Taxpayers can claim up to $300 in charitable contributions on their federal income tax return, even if they do not itemize deductions.
- In addition, for those taxpayers who do itemize, the limitation cap on Adjusted Gross Income for claiming charitable deductions, which is usually 50%, has been lifted. This means taxpayers who itemize can claim an unlimited deduction for charitable contributions.
