CARES Act and Tax Incentives for Charitable Giving

Please be aware of the CARES Act tax incentives that were put into place to stimulate charitable giving to non-profit organizations including Duchesne. If you itemize your deductions, you can deduct up to 100 percent of your adjusted gross income (increased from 60 percent) for cash contributions made through December 31, 2020. If you are not itemizing deductions on your 2020 taxes and claim the standard deduction, the CARES Act allows for an additional deduction for charitable gifts made in cash of up to $300. We encourage you to speak to your tax advisor to determine how and if this would benefit you.
