Tax advantages

tax advantages for donors 

Americans once again have a financial incentive to give generously to qualifying charities, including United Way of the Southern Tier and our community partners.

The 2021 charitable deduction that can be taken without itemizing is $300 for an individual or $600 for a couple filing a joint return. (Source: Forbes.)

For those who itemize, the 2021 standard deductions are: $12,550 for filing as single; $25,100 for married filing jointly, and $18,800 for head of household. (Source: Fidelity Charitable.)

Now is the perfect time to take advantage of this “above-the-line” opportunity and give to qualifying charities providing critical services to the Southern Tier.

Give online or mail a gift.
