Topic: "Charitable Planning After Tax Reform"
The New Normal Recent tax reform nearly doubled the standard deduction for individuals and families. While that simplifies the filing process for millions of Americans, it also complicates giving strategies for many who have made a habit of deducting their charitable contributions. Using actual client experiences, this presentation explores practical solutions and innovative ways to help donors evaluate their options and make good decisions about tax-effective giving. During the program, you’ll get an in-depth look at charitable IRA rollovers, legacy IRAs, lifetime CRATs, charitable gifts from trusts and estates, private foundation investment tax, donor advised fund distribution requirements, program related and SRI investments, and “charitable LLCs.”
