Tax Incentives for: 2020 Before 2020
Individuals
(itemized deduction)
Deduction cap of 100% of adjusted gross income Deduction cap of 60% of adjusted gross income
Individuals
(standard deduction - not itemized)
For 2020, filing taxpayers who normally take a standard deduction can make cash donations up to a $300 limit and claim as a charitable deduction $0
Individuals age 70 ½ or older who take Required Minimum Distributions from IRA accounts and not dependent on IRA entirely for living For the year 2020, there will be no mandatory distributions from retirement accounts (whatever the age of the owner), thus allowing those accounts to recover. The minimum age for making a tax-free transfer from an IRA to a charity remains at 70½, and the annual limit remains at $100,000.
However, since cash gifts are deductible in 2020 to the extent of adjusted gross income, a person could withdraw and then contribute a larger amount—with the deduction offsetting the taxable withdrawal
For 2019, Individuals age 70½+ could donate up to $100,000 in IRA assets (RMD) directly to charity annually without taking the distribution into taxable income
Corporations Can deduct up to 25% of taxable income Can deduct up to 10% of taxable income
