Good News for Charitable Giving in 2020

June 4, 2020 | Giving, News

Earlier this spring, Congress passed legislation including the CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act), which provides for a number of economic relief measures aimed at helping individuals, businesses, and nonprofits across the country during the COVID-19 pandemic. Two aspects of the CARES Act that help both nonprofits like MPF and donors:

  • Each taxpayer can claim up to $300 in charitable contributions on federal income tax return, even if not itemizing 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.
  • The Missouri Prairie Foundation does not offer legal, tax, or financial advice. Please consult your attorney, accountant, or financial advisor for assistance.
