Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the federal government has decided to make a change in how you can deduct your charitable giving from your taxes.
In the past, you could write off charitable giving on your income taxes, but only if you itemize your deductions. For your 2020 taxes, however, this has changed. You are now able to deduct up to $300 from your taxes for charitable giving even if you do not itemize.
Since donations to churches are considered charitable giving, this means you may deduct up to $300 of your giving to Northminster from your taxes regardless of whether you itemize or not.
We hope you will consider this benefit as you make plans to donate your tithes and offerings this year. As always, we thank you for your generosity in helping Northminster's mission and ministry.
