Maximize Your 2021 Gift to the Foundation - Charitable Giving Benefits under CARES Act Extended
The CARES Act expanded the deductibility of charitable contributions, and in 2021 many provisions were expanded making this year a favorable time to support the ASCRS Foundation.
Individual taxpayers who take the standard deduction may deduct charitable gifts up to $300 and married couples who file joint returns can deduct charitable gifts up to $600. Individual taxpayers who itemize their deductions may now deduct certain charitable contributions up to 100% of the taxpayers adjusted gross income. Prior to the CARES Act, taxpayers were limited to deducting 60% of the taxpayer’s adjusted income. Individual taxpayers can continue to carry forward any excess charitable contributions for five years, but the enhanced 100% deduction limitation is set to expire after 2021. In 2021, corporations may deduct charitable gifts up to 25% of the corporation’s taxable income (increased from 10%).
