Massachusetts has a new charitable contributions deduction. It’s available to all taxpayers, whether or not you itemize deductions on your federal return. Just keep track of your contributions and report them on the state tax return you file in the first part of 2024. They’ll be deducted from your taxable income. This deduction is universal, and permanent, so you can utilize it every year going forward.
The deduction is universal—it applies to all Massachusetts taxpayers and includes those who don’t itemize their federal deductions.

Donor Advised Funds (DAFs)
A DONOR-ADVISED FUND, or DAF, is a giving account established at a public charity. It allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time. Donors can contribute to the fund as frequently as they like, and then recommend grants to their favorite charitable organizations whenever it makes sense for them. Popular DAFs include Fidelity Investments Charitable Gift Fund, Schwab Fund for Charitable Giving, and Network for Good. Grants from donor-advised funds account for more than 10 percent of all giving in the United States.
Give from Your IRA (IRA Rollover)
If you are 70½ Years Old and Older You can give any amount (up to a maximum of $100,000) per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as Saint Rock without having to pay income taxes on the money. Gifts of any value $100,000 or less are eligible for this benefit. It is also calleda qualified charitable distribution, or QCD.
- Beginning in the year you turn 73, you can use your gift to satisfy all or part of your required minimum distribution (RMD).
- You pay no income taxes on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions.
- Since the gift doesn’t count as income, it can reduce your annual income level. This may help lower your Medicare premiums and decrease the amount of Social Security that is subject to tax.
