- Via a CARES Act Gift
- You may be able to take advantage of gift-related tax benefits associated with the 2020 CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief & Economic Security) Act, a bipartisan supported federal law, which increases tax incentives for charitable giving for both individuals and corporations made in the 2020 calendar year.
If you do not itemize your tax contributions:
The CARES Act allows for an additional (“above-the-line”) deduction for charitable gifts made in cash up to $300/individual ($600/couple).
If $300 is too much to commit to at once, you can still qualify for this above-the-line tax benefit by setting up monthly pledge payments that total $300 through December 2020.
If you do itemize your tax contributions:
The Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) limit has been increased for individuals from 60% to 100%, making this an excellent year to increase your giving if you are in a position to do so.
Taxable income for corporations has also increased from 10% to 25%. If you run your own business or company, consider making Center Theatre Group the beneficiary of your company’s 2020 charitable tax contribution.
