Non-itemizing US taxpayers can deduct $300 of their 2020 donations

This is a linkpost for an IRS news bulletin, to remind/inform US donors that even if they take the standard deduction (and so cannot normally deduct their donations), they can still deduct up to $300 of their 2020 donations (as part of the CARES act). The donations must have been made by 2020 December 31.

Couldn't see whether it is also just $300 for people filing jointly (or if you can claim $300 per person). Anyone know?

It is "capped at $300 per tax return whether you’re single or married filing jointly."

Married filing separately is capped at $150 per tax return (citing the same link).
