People that are age 70 ½ or older are required to take a distribution from their IRA, which is then treated as taxable income. The roll-over provision allows them to donate a portion of the distribution—up to $100,000—to qualified non-profits. The donated portion will not be treated as income and is therefore not subject to income tax. Some of the rules include:
Consult your qualified tax adviser for full details and advice on how to complete one of these contributions.
Gifts of stock or other appreciated assets are other ways to support conservation. Please contact the Six Rivers office for delivery details.
Also, please remember us when holiday gifting on behalf of your clients.
And don't forget that a plain ole' cash/check/charge donation helps the year end tax tally as well! Visit our store to donate online.
