This giving season, don’t forget to take this tax break for charitable donations — it might be your last chance

Millions of Americans making charitable donations this Giving Tuesday or any other time this year can take advantage of a certain tax break, and it might be their last chance for a while. Under current tax law, people who take the standard deduction on their tax returns can also take a tax deduction for charitable contributions up to $300. The deduction is up to $600 for married couple filing jointly.
