The Charitable Deduction: Loophole or Lifeline? (Video)

by NCF staff  |  December 18, 2012  |  Category: Insights  |  Tags: charitable, deduction, taxes

The Charitable Income Tax Deduction is under attack. Serious attack.

Right now, Congress and the President are looking for revenue wherever they can find it, and they're turning their attention to the charitable sector. Members of Congress met regularly last week and openly discussed how to effectively limit or even eliminate the Charitable Deduction for taxpayers ... a move that could devastate U.S. charities across the board.

So what can you do to stop this?

  1. Watch the video below and join the conversation at
  2. Share it with your family, friends, colleaguges, donors, clients ... whoever it is, encourage them to get involved too.
  3. Go to to contact your U.S. Representatives and Senators who have the power to make a difference. Call them and simply ask them to protect the Charitable Income Tax Deduction.
  4. Pray! Ask God that He would work in the hearts of our country's decision-makers.

Our Government "leaders" are desperate and few are of courage to do what is needed. Reduce spending! Those with courage get dismissed from important committees that could make a difference.

Steady, thank you for your comment. I hope many will do as you have suggested and urge our leaders to protect the charitable income tax deduction.

Eliminating the charitable gifts deduction will hurt America. I urge our leaders not to eliminate that deduction. Eliminating the deduction will cause an unfair rise in the effective tax rate for many taxpayers.
