*New, temporary deduction for charitable donations. As part of the CARES Act, taxpayers can deduct up to $300 for cash donations given to charity even if they choose to take the standard deduction, rather than itemizing their deductions. The IRS estimates that about nine in 10 taxpayers now take the standard deduction. So, if someone makes a cash donation before the end of the year they can get a deduction of up to $300 when they file. A deduction lowers both adjusted gross income and taxable income for the taxpayer. Taxpayers can deduct up to $300 for cash donations to charity, even if choosing the standard deduction.

We will use your gift today to provide direct material assistance to local families struggling with poverty. We are grateful for the support you offer. Questions? Please call (608) 442-7200, or email
