Sustaining the Jewish Community today
and securing its future for the generations that will follow us.
It’s not too soon to use your IRA to make a gift to your Jewish Community Foundation to benefit causes you care about—forever! Take advantage of this opportunity every year to bring life-changing programs and services to people in Central Pennsylvania, Israel and around the world.
On December 18, 2015, Congress passed the IRA Charitable Rollover into permanent law. If you are 70 1/2 or older, you can transfer up to $100,000 (or $200,000 if married filing jointly) directly from your pre-tax IRA assets each year to support the causes you are passionate about and that reflect your Jewish values. If the donator is 72 or older the donations can count toward the required annual payout from the IRA (required minimum distributions.) While there is no deduction for the donation, the withdrawal does not count as taxable income received to be reported on the individual tax return as would be required if the donation did not occur.
Now is a great time to consider tax-savings ideas that can reduce your taxes before these cash donation provisions expire, or Congress passes new more expansive tax laws.
