As we draw closer to the end of year 2020, it is a good time to make a donation if you have not yet done so. Under the Cares Act, part of the federal government’s pandemic relief program that pass in March, individual taxpayers can take a deduction of up to $300 for cash donations made in 2020 when they file their tax return in spring.
Typically, you can deduct charitable donations only if you itemize your personal deductions, rather than taking the standard deduction. This new “universal” deduction makes it easier for people to receive a tax benefit for giving. Because the deduction is taken “above the line”, it reduces, by up to $300, your adjusted gross income.
Use “Online Giving” It’s easy, fast and secure. Secure and confidential! No need to share payment information with the Parish Office.
