The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015, which was passed by Congress and signed into law on December 18, 2015, made permanent what is popularly known as the IRA charitable rollover.
Charitably minded taxpayers have enthusiastically embraced the IRA charitable rollover as an opportunity to transfer up to $100,000 each year to charity without it being treated as a taxable distribution. Since being introduced in 2006, the IRA charitable rollover has faced sunsetting and had actually expired on December 31, 2013. Now it has been reinstituted and made permanent.
Here are the steps to take to make a gift:
If you want to make a qualifying transfer, contact your IRA administrator and instruct that person to transfer funds to the charity(ies) you designate.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, signed into law in December of 2017, affects the income tax of both businesses and individuals and the federal estate tax on the estates of certain high-net-worth individuals.
Except for increasing the deduction ceiling on cash gifts from 50% to 60% of AGI, the effect on charitable giving is more indirect than direct. The deduction of charitable gifts by itemizers and the gift instruments have been preserved. The income-tax savings from charitable gifts will generally be somewhat smaller because of the lower tax rates and because a larger number of individuals will not itemize deductions and, thus, will not realize tax savings from their gifts.
Your support for the mission of the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant can last beyond your lifetime. A gift to the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant in your will or revocable trust enables you to support the ongoing restoration, museum activity and educational outreach; making a difference for future generations of automotive industry heritage enthusiasts.
