Charitable Contribution Deduction

Due to a special tax provision, taxpayers who don't itemize may qualify to take a deduction of up to $600 for married taxpayers filing joint returns, and up to $300 for all other filers, for cash contributions made in 2021 to qualifying organizations.
Under the temporary law, taxpayers don't need to itemize deductions on their tax returns to take advantage of this. A more limited version of this temporary tax benefit was included in the CARES Act of March 2020, and originally only applied to tax year 2020. The Taxpayer Certainty and Disaster Tax Relief Act of December 2020 generally extended it through the end of 2021. Read more here.
