Give a charitable donation that assists hardworking families by supporting areas like job skill training, childcare, education, and more.
Here are details on the NEW tax deduction:
Donors who take the standard deduction may also take an “above-the-line” deduction for up to $300 in charitable donations made in 2020 ($600 for married couples filing jointly). This effectively allows a limited charitable deduction for taxpayers claiming the standard deduction. For example, if you take the standard deduction and give $300 to charity, you will get a $300 tax deduction in addition to the standard deduction. ($12,400 for individuals and $24,800 for married couples filing jointly).*
Importantly, this deduction is available to you, even if you have already taken advantage of the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit!
For donors who itemize deductions, the CARES ACT also allows you to take a tax deduction of up to 100% of your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) for contributions to qualifying charities in 2020. The new law temporarily lifts the limits on charitable giving from 60% of a taxpayer’s AGI to 100% for 2020.
