Individuals who take the standard deduction may deduct up to $300 in charitable contributions. Joint filers in 2021 may take an additional “above the line” deduction up to $600. Individuals who itemize on their 2020 tax returns can elect to deduct donations up to 100% of their 2020 adjusted gross income.
