Support the Village and Get an Outstanding Tax Advantage That You May Not Know About - And It Ends 12/31/13
If you have an IRA and if you are 70 ½ years of age or older you are permitted to transfer up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualifying charity without recognizing the transferred assets as income. This vehicle is called an IRA Charitable Rollover. One of our members with a background in finance did this and says, "I like this kind of contribution because 1) it counts toward my annual required minimum distribution and 2) the donated funds are not included as part of my taxable income. I receive the entire benefit in tax savings."
This opportunity will end December 31, 2013. A cash gift of this kind will help the Village thrive and at the same time provide the donor with an important tax saving. It's the "give help, get help" Village way. Consult your financial advisor for details.
