Article Below Confirms Permanent Giving Incentives.

Charitable Giving Incentives Now Permanent

On December 18, 2015, President Obama signed the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015 into law. The act makes permanent three charitable giving incentives that had been enacted and expired several times during the last decade:

  1. the IRA charitable rollover, which allows donors aged 70 and 1/2 and above to make tax-free donations of up to $100,000 directly from their IRAs to qualified charities;
  2. enhanced deductions for donations of food inventory; and
  3. enhanced deductions for conservation land easements.

Independent Sector hailed this development as “a monumental victory on Capitol Hill.” “These incentives,” the organization’s three interim co-CEOs wrote, “strengthen the charitable community’s ability to improve American lives and our communities, and ends the sector’s nearly 10-year long struggle to make these incentives a permanent part of the tax code.”
