Donate to U.S. Classic Guitar

Please consider Helping U.S. Classic Guitar by making a donation of $300 for individuals or $600 for married couples in 2020! All proceeds will go directly to upgrade our audio and video equipment for the upcoming U.S. International Guitar Series 2020-2021 Season. Our goal is to raise $5000 by January 1, 2021 specifically for this much needed equipment including upgraded computer equipment, recording equipment, and video cameras.

The CARES Act Adds a New $300 Charitable Contribution Deduction for 2020

Thanks to federal coronavirus relief legislation, taxpayers are now able to take advantage of a new deduction for donating to qualifying charities — up to $300 for individual filers and up to $600 for married couples. This applies even if they don’t itemize, which is favorable news for many tax filers.
Another nifty CARES Act change worth noting for this particular charitable contribution benefit is the removal of the deduction cap. Normally, the deduction cap on charitable contributions for those who itemize is 60% of your adjusted gross income (AGI). The CARES Act lifts that cap to 100% for individual and joint tax filers that wish to claim this $300 charitable donation deduction. More Information
