Legislative Update - AFP Urges Senate Finance Committee to Enact Universal Charitable Deduction, Enhance IRA Charitable Rollover
The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) submitted a statement
to the Senate Finance Committee today calling on Congress to approve new tax incentives to encourage giving in the wake of new challenges that charities are facing. "Just as the pandemic is winding down and fundraisers were feeling more optimistic, charities and their donors are now faced with skyrocketing gas prices, rising inflation costs, geopolitical conflict and weak consumer confidence," said AFP President and CEO Mike Geiger, MBA, CPA,
in the comments to the Finance Committee.
One recommendation is to reinstate the universal charitable deduction, allowing all taxpayers to take a tax deduction for their charitable giving even if they didn't itemize their taxes. AFP also urged Congress to enhance the Charitable IRA Rollover by passing the Legacy IRA Act.
