Advocacy in Action

Of the several stories of interest, one may foreshadow the continued viability of the charitable contributions deduction through federal income tax reform.  The story reports that a handful of states have either enacted or proposed to enact caps on itemized deductions for state income tax purposes, but have not subjected the charitable contributions deduction to those caps.  An exception is Maine, which has passed a budget limiting total itemized deductions (including the deduction for charitable gifts) to $27,500.
