IRA Charitable Rollover

On May 14, 2015 the U.S. Senate passed the U.S. House of Representatives’ “America Gives More Act of 2015,” a bill that includes a permanent extension of the IRA Charitable Rollover, known as the “Permanent IRA Charitable Contribution Act of 2015,” allowing taxpayers age 70 ½ or older to make tax-free charitable gifts of up to $100,000 per year directly from their Individual Retirement Accounts to eligible charities.  The bill will be sent to the President before passing into law. To learn more or to donate to Houston Public Media, please contact Julie Anderson-Smith at jas@houstonpublicmedia.org or call (713) 743-6878.

Stock or securities

A gift of appreciated securities – either publicly traded or from a private company – may provide greater tax advantages than gifts of cash.  With a gift of stock, you can deduct the fair market value as a charitable gift and completely avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation.
