Two New Tax Benefits
Universal Deduction for Donations Up to $300
For individuals and $600 for married-filing jointly couples. For the over 9 out of 10 people who no longer itemize their charitable giving, Congress has extended the CARES Act and will allow these individual taxpayers to deduct donations to the charity of up to $300 for individuals and $600 for married-filing jointly couples on their 2021 federal tax return, even though they take the standard deduction.
Raising the Charitable Giving Deduction Cap
For those donors who are still able to itemize their deductions, and therefore directly write off gifts to charity, the current deduction cap is 60% of adjusted gross income*. Corporations are able to deduct charitable donations up to 10% of taxable income.
Enterprise Zone Contributions
The EZ tax credit allows a dollar-for-dollar reduction in state taxes owed by an amount equal to 25% of cash donations $250 or more. To make a contribution to the Arts Center as an Enterprise Zone donation write “Enterprise Zone’ in the memo field on the check. Include your tax id number or the last four digits of your social security number. The purpose of the Enterprise Zone Contribution Tax Credit Program is to support businesses and non-profit organizations, such as the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center, located in economically distressed areas throughout the State of Colorado. Please consult with your professional tax adviser to be sure the Enterprise Zone tax credit program will be of benefit to your specific tax situation.
