Special fundraising and tax announcement for those in the US
« on: December 29, 2020, 08:41:44 pm »
Em hotep!

This message only applies to those who are going to file taxes in the United States of America in 2021.

The IRS is actually doing something extra to help 501c3 charities like ours this year! Those who plan on taking the standard deduction for their 2021 taxes can get a tax credit of up to $300 for donations to Charity organizations such as ours *without* having to itemize! All you have to do is make donations prior to December 31st (two days from now). Any donations you’ve already made in 2020 count towards this total. Do note that this only applies to cash donations directly to the House and does not apply to payments made for goods (such as the Set book or any auctions). Full details are available here:
https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/special-300-tax-deduction-helps-most-people-give-to-charity-this-year-even-if-they-dont-itemize

As a reminder, you can make donations from this page:

Bumping this up again since the IRS announced back in September that they are continuing to offer this benefit to all American taxpayers in the 2021 tax year. You can find the full announcement here:
https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/expanded-tax-benefits-help-individuals-and-businesses-give-to-charity-during-2021-deductions-up-to-600-available-for-cash-donations-by-non-itemizers

The short version is that even without itemizing on your 2021 taxes, you can benefit from donating up to $300 in cash during the year for individuals or $600 for couples filing jointly. All you have to do is make donations prior to December 31st. Any donations you've already made in 2021 count towards this total. Do note that this only applies to cash donations directly to the House and does not apply to payments made for goods (such as auctions or raffles).
