Lion’s Share of Americans Support Giving Everyday Donors Tax Breaks, Poll Finds
Some 85 percent of adults say federal charity deductions shouldn’t be limited to just the wealthiest.
Americans overwhelmingly support legislation to allow everyone to receive a tax break for their charitable gifts, according to a poll released Tuesday by Independent Sector, a membership organization of nonprofits that is pushing the idea. It is possible that Congress will vote to expand charitable deductions in a pending disaster funding package, but the biggest obstacle is the calendar. Congress has a limited time to consider legislation before going into recess for the entire month of October before the November midterm elections.
