Charitable Giving - Did you know?
Free! – May 6, 2019, 2:00 pm – SFL Main Location
Giving to charity is not only personally satisfying, the IRS (and possibly your state) may also reward you with generous tax breaks.
Some things have changed since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2018. The new tax law nearly doubles the standard deduction amount for taxpayers. For married couples filing jointly, more than $24,000 in itemized deductions must be claimed to exceed the standard deduction. This means that many people will not get a tax benefit from their charitable contributions.
However, there are still ways to gain tax benefits from your charitable giving! We hope our non-profit 501(c)3, Steady for Life, Inc. will be on your radar this year as you plan your charitable contributions.
On Monday, May 6th at 2:00, Steady for Life with Laura Mickels, RFC will host a free seminar on tax-advantaged charitable giving with topics including Donation Lumping and Charitable Clumping, Qualified Charitable Distributions from IRAs, Donating Highly Appreciated Property, Remainder Interests in Property and Charitable Trusts, and Life Insurance and Charitable Giving.
