State Level SALT Work-Arounds: What Do They Mean for Philanthropy?

Members, View the Recording

With the passage of tax reform and the repeal of the state and local tax (SALT) deduction, a handful of high-tax states—such as New Jersey, California, and New York—have been considering proposals to alleviate the new burden their residents will now face. Many of these proposals have involved utilizing the charitable deduction as a work-around for residents to still claim the full value of the previous SALT deduction. Join us as we explore how such proposals could impact the philanthropic sector and charitable giving.
