New Tax Rules Foster Donations

The 2020 CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act and following laws encourage donations to charities, whether you itemize deductions or use the standard deduction. These rules remain in effect in 2021. If you have questions, please consult an experienced and capable tax advisor.

Caring House is eligible for donations under these rules. Please give now, if you are able. You’ll help improve the end-of-life experience for our residents and families in our community.
