Elizabeth City, NC - December 5, 2013 Important giving update for those over 70½! "... see that you also excel in the grace of giving." 2 Corinthians 8:7b Great news for givers like you ... the Federal Government IRA Charitable Rollover tax incentive is still in place as a part of the overall tax relief benefits. At this time the Federal government has announced that this will not be renewed in 2014. However, that incentive is still in effect through December 31, 2013. Please consult your tax advisor before making any decisions since individual situations vary and tax laws are in constant flux. Individuals aged 70½ and older are allowed to donate up to $100,000 from their Individual Retirement Accounts (Traditional or Roth IRAs) to Mid-Atlantic Christian University or Mid-Atlantic Foundation without having to count the distributions as taxable income. This giving incentive is particularly beneficial to those individuals who do not itemize their tax deductions and would not otherwise have received any tax benefit for their charitable contributions. Charitable contributions from an IRA must go directly to Mid-Atlantic. In other words, the donation must be submitted from the IRA trustee or broker made payable to Mid-Atlantic. Each...
