Special Note About Tax Year 2020

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, also known as the CARES Act, was signed into law by the U.S. President on March 27, 2020. A provision of this law provides a special $300 deduction for the Tax Year 2020 that is designed especially for people who choose to take the standard deduction, rather than itemizing. Read more about this at here.
