Conservative Think Tank Says Trump Tax Law will Reduce Charitable Giving by over $17 Billion

19 06 2018

From the American Enterprise Institute:

“This paper investigates how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act affects household charitable giving in the United States. We find that the law will reduce charitable giving by $17.2 billion (4.0 percent) in 2018 according to a static model and $16.3 billion assuming a modest boost to growth. Four-fifths of this decline is driven by an increase in the number of taxpayers who claim the standard deduction. We also investigate two policy options that could boost total giving above previous levels: an above-the-line deduction and a tax credit.”
