WHAT ARE THE TAX BENEFITS OF AN IRA ROLLOVER GIFT?

An IRA rollover has several significant tax advantages. It allows you to give from pre-tax assets. If do not itemize or are subject to charitable deduction limits, the IRA still allows you to give while receiving tax benefits. An IRA rollover gift could also help you to give while receiving tax benefits. An IRA rollover gift could also help you avoid income that could push you into a higher tax bracket.

If you are 70 or older, you can use your individual retirement account (IRA) to help support the Friend Historical Society. To learn more, please contact us. We would welcome the opportunity to answer your questions and work with you.
