Feeling the holiday spirit? Consider donating to charity, and you’ll end up giving the best kind of present — one that benefits you, too.
Time Is Running Out to Get a $300 IRS Tax Deduction for Donating to Charity | Personal Finance

Single filers can deduct up to $300; married couples that file jointly can deduct up to $600. Crucially, you don’t even have to itemize your taxes to claim it.
However, you do have to move fast. The deadline for making an eligible donation is Dec. 31.
