INCENTIVES TO GIVE
The CARES Act includes charitable giving incentives targeted towards individual and corporate donors. The act allows a $300 above-the-line deduction for 2020 charitable contributions to 501(c)(3) organizations for individual taxpayers that do not itemize. These contributions must go directly to the charity, donations to donor-advised funds (DAFs) or other intermediaries will not qualify.
For taxpayers who itemize, the AGI cap on annual contributions will be temporarily changed from 60% to 100% of AGI for 2020 and any excess contributions will be provided a five-year carryover period. For corporations, the annual contribution limit is changed from 10% to 25%. In addition, the corporate food donation cap has been raised from 15% to 25%.
