The CARES Act expands tax deductions for charitable giving. If you take the standard deduction on your 2020 tax return (the one that you'll file in 2021), you can claim a brand new "above-the-line" deduction of up to $300 for cash donations to charity you make this year. Normally, you have to itemize on Schedule A to get a tax break for charitable donations. In this case, though, it's the other way around—if you itemize, you can't take this new deduction. If you know of a deserving charity, please list it for folks that are so inclined to make a donation. I will start: The Army Emergency Relief (AER). The AER "Helps the Army Take Care of Its Own" by assisting Soldiers, retirees and survivors with emergency assistance in their time of need. Over 90% of donated funds go directly to Soldiers and their families. I know there are many others... Please list them in this thread. Thank you.
