Consider Bunching Charitable Donations
The new tax law effective in 2018 includes an increase in the standard deduction, which will likely decrease the number of taxpayers that itemize their deductions and therefore obtain a tax benefit from their charitable contributions. We suggest that our clients who regularly make charitable contributions consider "bunching" them, or donate multiple years at one time, rather than giving annually. This way, they can itemize\deduct their donations in the year they make the contributions and take a standard deduction the years they do not.
