Non-itemizing US taxpayers can deduct $300 of their 2020 donations

This is a linkpost for an IRS news bulletin, to remind/​inform US donors that even if they take the standard deduction (and so cannot normally deduct their donations), they can still deduct up to $300 of their 2020 donations (as part of the CARES act). The donations must have been made by 2020 December 31.
