Tax Law Changes Effect Charitable Contributions
2017 Tax Legislation impacts charitable giving in the United States. Donors have different tax incentives, which are important to understand in the good stewardship of your finances.
- “Clumping” of charitable gifts
The standard deduction has doubled for both individuals (now $12,000) and couples ($24,000). This creates an incentive to clump your charitable contributions into one larger, itemized year and rotate that with a standard deduction in the next.
- IRA/SEP Required Minimum Distributions
Those 70½ and above may make charitable gifts from their IRA/SEP Required Minimum Distribution which do not accrue towards their total annual charitable deduction.
