Deductions for Individual Charitable Cash Donations up to $600

Individuals, including married individuals filing separate returns, who take the standard deduction can claim a deduction of up to $300 on their 2021 federal income tax for their charitable cash contributions made to certain qualifying charitable organizations. For married individuals filing a joint return, the maximum deduction is increased to $600.Under the temporary law, taxpayers don’t need to itemize deductions on their tax returns to take advantage of this, which creates tax-favorable donation options not normally available to about 90 percent of tax filers. Donations must be made by December 31, 2021 to qualify.
