Why Limiting the Charity Tax Deduction Won’t Destroy Charities

Business & Money

At least one part of negotiations over the fiscal cliff appears misguided: Eliminating or capping the tax deduction for charitable contributions isn’t as big a deal as some fear.

Republicans have proposed raising $800 billion over 10 years by capping tax deductions for the wealthy, including highly popular breaks for mortgage interest, state and local taxes, and charitable giving.

It is quite unfortunate that over the last 10 years, the travel industry has already been able to to take on terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, influenza, swine flu, as well as first ever true global downturn.

There are constantly fresh difficulties and the possiblility to which the business must once again adapt and answer.
