Understanding Charitable Tax Deduction Legislation

"The charitable tax deduction is 100 years old. Yes, 100 years old. It was enacted in 1917 to encourage private philanthropy after individual income taxes were increased to help pay for the United States’ effort in World War I. As we look back on these last 100 years of giving, it’s important for us to understand where we stand today." [NP Engage]

Charities Coax Lawmakers to Rethink Tax Plan

Charities stand to lose billions in donations if Republicans advance their tax overhaul, prompting the nonprofits to carefully attempt to persuade lawmakers to reshape their plan.

As a result of a proposal to double the standard deduction and prevent people from deducting state and local taxes from federal taxable income, fewer taxpayers -- 5% instead of 30% -- would have a financial incentive to itemize their deductions, including their charitable gifts, according to several estimates.” [Fox Business]
