New Tax Benefit for Donors

Starting with the 2020 tax year (filed in 2021), families who do not itemize deductions can still get a small tax benefit for donating to nonprofits. A donation will reduce your adjusted income by up to $300 before estimating how much tax you owe. For example, if you donate $500 to OCP, and your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) is $75,500, you can claim $300 of the $500 off your AGI, and you will only pay tax on $75,200 of income, saving you about $75 in taxes. Keep it in mind
