A recent article published by The Chronicle of Philanthropy suggests that the nonprofit sector's efforts to convince the White House to preserve the charitable deduction may have paid off. The article indicates that the budget proposal the Obama administration gave to the Republicans earlier this week appears to preserve more generous write-offs for charitable deductions versus other deductions, such as mortgage interest, state taxes. etc. While White House officials have not yet confirmed the details, some Washington insiders are reporting that Obama's proposal preserves the charitable deduction's current rates. Of course, with all of the back and forth proposals, only time will tell where charitable deduction will end up. But still it is encouraging that the nonprofit sector's advocacy on this issue appears to have had an impact.
