CARES Act Provisions

Signed into law on March 27, 2020, the CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act makes the following tax-saving provisions:

  • If you’ll be taking the standard tax-deduction on your 2020 return, you may claim a new “above-the-line” deduction of up to $300 for cash donations to nonprofits like Heinz History Center. In this way, you’ll also gain the ability to decrease your adjusted gross income (AGI), meaning that you may qualify for other tax advantages.
  • If you’ll be itemizing your tax-deductions for 2020, you may now deduct 100% of your charitable contributions from your AGI. This had generally been capped at 60%. If you’re a business owner, the 10% limit has been increased to 25%. This measure applies to cash gifts to public charities like Heinz History Center.

This has been provided for informational purposes only. Please consult your tax professional for advice on how to proceed on these and other tax provisions.

The History Center recently earned the coveted 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency, so you can be confident that your donation is going to a great place.
