New For 2021

The 2020 CARES Act passed by Congress has made some significant changes affecting charitable giving this year. Those changes include a new charitable deduction available to individual taxpayers who do not itemize their deductions, which allows for a charitable donation of up to $600 per individual. The CARES Act also waives the requirement for many IRA holders to take a minimum distribution by the end of the year.
