Hurry, Croomies can get up to a $600 tax deduction even without itemizing thanks to a special provision that expires in 2021

Nine (9) out of ten (10) tax filers can potentially qualify for up to a $300 (filing single) or up to $600 (filing jointly) tax deduction even without itemizing by making a donation to a qualified charitable organization - like the Crooms AoIT Alumni Association, Inc. - before the end of 2021. C-Corporations are also able to deduct up to 25% of their donations instead of 10%.This is thanks to a temporary provision that runs through the end of 2021 in the CARES Act. 

Want to capture this tax deduction?
