Thinking of including Folklore Village in your estate planning?
We have good news from Washington today:
December 18, 2015
As of this afternoon, both the United States House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate have passed a permanent extension of the IRA charitable rollover. President Obama is expected to sign the bill into law.
This provision, which had expired at the end of 2014, will now be effective retroactive to January 1, 2015. Unlike prior years, the provision is no longer scheduled to expire. Donors age 70 1/2 and older may transfer up to $100,000 from their IRA to a qualified public charity. The transfer will be made free of federal income tax and the gift qualifies for the donor's 2015 required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year.
Many of you had been waiting for passage of this law before you acted on your IRA distribution for 2015. If you wish to direct an IRA distribution to Folklore Village, contact your administrator soon, as it can take some time for these distributions to be processed. Let us know if we can be helpful in any way.
