BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) –– The season of giving may be coming to an end, but St. Vincent de Paul says the need doesn’t end with the holidays.

If you want to give a financial donation, there is a special incentive this year. For the 2021 tax year, the IRS introduced a special tax provision that gives more people the option to deduct donations to qualified charities.

This provision allows individual taxpayers, including married individuals filing separate returns, to claim a deduction of up to $300 for cash contributions made to qualifying charities during the 2021 tax year.
