2020 Charitable Donations

Northern Indiana Bluegrass is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Charitable  donations to the club are deductible from your taxes. The recently enacted government stimulus bill (the "CARES Act") provides some additional tax relief for donors. This makes it easier to give and save at the same time.

Charitable Giving pictureTo encourage charitable giving in 2020, the CARES Act includes two tax provisions that reward people who donate to charity.

First, a new "above-the-line" deduction of up to $300 is allowed for cash donations to charity in 2020. Donations to donor advised funds and certain organizations that support charities are not deductible. You can't claim this deduction if you itemize deductions on your 2020 tax return (i.e., you must claim the standard deduction).

For taxpayers who do itemized on their 2020 return, the 60% of adjusted gross income limit that normally applies to cash contributions is waived. That means you can deduct more of your charitable cash contributions this year. As with the new above-the-line deduction, donations to donor advised funds and supporting organizations don't count.

If you have questions, seek help from your tax advisor.
