New Tax Law Changes with the CARES Act

Congress recently passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) that includes several charitable tax provisions to encourage giving. These include:

  • A new deduction for donors who do not itemize when filing their tax returns. If you do not itemize but make a cash gift to charity, you will be allowed to take a special tax deduction, up to $300, to reduce your tax liability.
  • An increase in the deduction limit up to 100% of a donor's annual income for cash gifts (previously the deduction was capped at 60% of annual income). If you make a gift, you will be able to deduct more this year.

If you are interested in learning more about these opportunities, please contact UCLA's Gift Planning team at 800-737-8252 or at giftplanning@support.ucla.edu. Please also let us know how we can help you during this time.
