The CARES Act expands charitable giving incentives and allows taxpayers to take a charitable deduction of up to $300 for those who take the standard deduction.

For those who do itemize their deductions, the new law allows for cash contributions to qualified charities such as the Michigan 4-H Foundation to be deducted up to 100% of your adjusted gross income for the 2020 calendar year.
