Dec 28, 2020 - CARES Act Update

Please note that US Congress through the CARES Act have authorized four giving tax deductions this year as summarized below, for those who contribute to tax-exempt organizations.


The adjusted gross income (AGI) limit for contributions was increased for individual donors. For cash, checks and credit card donations made in 2020, donors can now elect to deduct up to 100 percent of your AGI (increased from 60 percent). That means your taxable income can decrease to zero if you donate up to your income level.

Not itemizing

The CARES Act allows for up to $300 in charitable contributions to qualify as an above-the-line deduction, meaning you don’t have to itemize deductions in order to claim the $300 as a deduction on your taxable income for donations made in cash, checks or credit card.

DAF giving

These new incentives also apply to cash, check and credit card contributions to charities such as ILIA, if the donor is a DAF.

IRA giving

The Required Minimum Distribution is waived for IRA and other qualified retirement plan owners for 2020. For donors who still wish to use IRA funds to make a qualified charitable distribution, it is still available up to $100,000 for individuals who are older than 70½.
