Q: I noticed in 2018, I wasn’t able to deduct my charitable contributions on my tax return. Can you please explain to me what changed? And will that still be the same for 2019?
A: Many tax filers may have found they were not able to deduct their charitable contributions in 2018 due to the higher Standard Deductions in the new tax law. And this WILL apply again for 2019. Here’s what you need to know to make the most of your giving.
