Hello, Lacerte is only taking $300 charitable deduction on a married-filing-joint return. However, it was my understanding that HR 33, Sec. 212, p 1886 clarified the above-the-line deduction for MFJ to extend through 2021 and that IRS has previously interpreted the CARES Act provision to limit the deduction to $300 whether you were filing single or MFJ but the extender provision clarifies that a MFJ return can receive a $600 deduction. Anybody else under this impression, please advise, thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I've noticed that on charitable donations coming from a pass-through entity (S-Corp in my case), that the program will not automatically pick up this amount (limited to the $ 300). In other words, unlike the pass-through charity from Schedule K-1 automatically being included in Schedule A, you apparently must need to insert on Screen 25 as a cash donation. Lacerte needs to fix this.
