Sorry if this is a repeat, which is probably is:

From Saturday's (11/21/2020) New York Times, page B5:

Under the CARES act, for 2020, you can deduct up to $300 for a CASH donation to a qualified public charity...even if you don't itemize.

Someone asked if its $600 for a Married Filing Jointly return. The answer in the article says that IRS has not given an opinion on that yet....whether the allowable $300 deduction is per filer, or per return.

"Maybe we should have a travel ban against Christian countries?"........suggested some native Americans 400 years ago.
