Giving in 2021

Update to CARES Act! Tax Contribution Information
Right now, there is an added incentive to make a first gift or an additional gift. The Consolidated Appropriations Act passed by Congress in 2021 extended a CARES act deduction for up to $300 per tax payer and expanded it to $600 for married couples. Even when you take the standard deduction. You can take advantage with a gift to APU Nordic Ski Center before time runs out on December 31st.

If You Itemize:  The CARES ACT increased the previous charitable deduction limit of 60% Adjusted Gross Income to 100%. That means, if you can afford to give away as much as you earn, you can completely offset your income with charitable giving for 2021.
