$300 Universal Charitable Deduction

  • Only for people who do not itemize their taxes
  • Donors who itemize their taxes are eligible for the existing charitable deduction
  • Only for cash donations (not in kind)
  • Can be used by the charity for any purpose (not limited to COVID-19 relief efforts)
