Did you know that Congress just authorized a new "Universal" $300 tax deduction for charitable giving?

Taxpayers who don’t separately itemize their deductions are allowed to claim up to $300 of charitable giving as a tax deduction for the 2021 tax year. If you are one of the 88% of taxpayers who don't itemize their deductions, consider taking advantage of this deduction by donating to Towne Street (and other good causes).


Want to help make a difference while you shop in the Amazon app, at no extra cost to you? Simply follow the instructions below to select "Towne Street Theatre" as your charity and activate AmazonSmile in the app. They'll donate a portion of your eligible mobile app purchases to us.

How it works:

TST is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and your donation is tax deductible to the extent the law allows.
