Above the line charitable deductions now available (even if you don't itemize) according to this Kiplinger article.
Does anyone know if this $300 above the line charitable deduction go to $600 for joint filers? Thanks.
Thanks for posting this. Itemizing is not beneficial for me since reverting to "single" status, but I can and will take advantage of the charitable deduction. I can't afford to donate a lot, but I do send a small check each month to the local animal shelter & SPCA, and it is a bit over $300 a year. I usually don't read much on taxes and exemptions, since my situation is very simple and straightforward, and I know I'll take the standard deduction when it comes time to file, so I'm glad I decided to read your post.
