IRA CHARITABLE ROLLOVER REINSTATED

The IRA charitable rollover has been reinstated for all of 2015 and will remain permanent.

  • If you are 70½ or older, you can give up to $100,000 directly from your IRA to Kansas City Ballet
  • The transfer generatesneither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you still benefit even if you do not itemize your tax deductions.
  • If you have not taken your required minimum distribution for the year, your IRA charitable rollover gift can satisfy all or part of that requirement.
  • The transfer may be made in addition to any other charitable giving you have planned.
  • The gift needs to be made by Dec. 31, 2015, if you want your gift to qualify this year.
  • If you made a gift to a qualified charity of up to $100,000 directly from your IRA in 2015, your gift will qualify under the new law.

If you already have made a qualifying gift in 2015, contact your advisor to make sure your gift is properly reported on your 2015 income tax returns.  If you have any questions, contact Ron Fredman or 816.216.5585.

GIFTS OF STOCK

Your gift of appreciated stock can also provide you possible tax benefits. Please consult your broker and accountant to make the gift that is best for your situation. The Ballet’s policy is to sell the stock upon receipt. You will be credited with the value of the stock on the day it is transferred to the Ballet’s account.
