Final Rule on SALT and State Giving Tax Credits

On June 13, 2019, the U.S. Treasury Department and the IRS formally published rules designed to change how the federal government will treat donations to charitable nonprofits that generate state or local tax credits. The IRS rule will result in a reduction of the charitable contribution deduction allowed for donors that benefit from the North Dakota's endowment fund and other state giving tax credits, with one safe harbor provision.

Preserving Nonprofit Nonpartisanship

The Johnson Amendment is the longstanding law that protects charitable organizations from demands for political endorsements and engagement in other partisan activities. NDANO strongly believes current law requiring charitable nonprofits to remain nonpartisan is the best way to advance missions and work as partners with all levels of government. Learn more.

Support for Charitable Giving Incentives

NDANO supports continuation of the federal charitable deduction, as well as a universal, or non-itemizer, deduction. Learn more.
