ACGA's Statement Regarding the House’s Tax Reform Bill
ACGA requests that the House’s tax reform bill:
- Make permanent the IRA/charitable rollover for direct transfers to public charities (expiring this year).
- Expand the IRA/charitable rollover to allow a rollover for charitable life-income plans for donors.
- Provide an option for donors to make charitable contributions by April 15 and elect to deduct them on the prior year’s income tax return (due by April 15 in the year that the election is made).
- For all new charitable remainder unitrusts and annuity trusts, decrease the minimum annual payment to three percent.
