NEW TAX DEDUCTIBLE GIVING FOR THIS YEAR ONLY For 2020 only, the CARES Act allows taxpayers who do not itemize deductions a one-time, abovethe-line deduction o their federal taxes of up to $300 for cash gifts, i.e. gifts made via check or credit card. Generally, people taking the standard deduction do not receive any tax benefit for their charitable contribution. Because this is an “above-the-line” deduction, a gift to the church can help reduce total federal taxable income by up to $300. The CARES Act also allows itemizers to deduct cash contributions of up to 100% of their adjusted gross income (AGI) in 2020 for federal tax purposes.
