Increased Limit For 2021 Charitable Donation Tax Deductions

December 30, 2021


For the second year in a row, the IRS has temporarily suspended limits on charitable deductions to qualified organizations – which allows you to give to non-profits and to save more money on your taxes.

For non-itemizers, you can deduct an extra $300 over the standard deduction.

For itemizers, you can deduct up to 100% of your AGI if you feel so generous.

The extension of these benefits from the CARES Act stimulus package is intended to encourage donations to the many non-profits helping people through COVID and those which have had declining donations during the pandemic.

Note that this applies to federal taxes; state laws may vary. It is always wise to review your personal situation with a quick call to your tax preparer or attorney.
