On March 27, 2020, the United States Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The Act provides financial relief to employees, small businesses, churches and non-profit organizations. This relief also impacts our donors by providing substantial tax benefits for charitable giving. We have summarized the tax benefits of the CARES Act below and we hope that these incentives will encourage your continued support of Toccoa Falls College.

 Above-the-Line Charitable Contribution Deduction

For the year 2020, individual taxpayers who do not itemize deductions may claim up to $300 of charitable contributions made as a deduction in arriving at adjusted gross income.

Charitable Contribution Deduction Limits Increased

Cash contributions made by individual taxpayers in 2020 to public charities are subject to a limit of 100% of adjusted gross income – not the 60% limit that regularly applies.
