Tax Deductible Gift in 2017
You can make a contribution to the church or fulfill your pledge using your IRA.
If you are 70 1/2 or older:
•You may transfer up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to the church.
•If you have not yet taken your required minimum distribution for 2017, your gift can satisfy all or part of that requirement.
•You pay no income tax on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor tax deduction, so you can benefit even if you do not itemize your tax deduction.
Don’t delay! To help ensure that your gift counts this year, transfers will need to be made by December 29, 2017 (last business day of the year).
Please return your 2018 Pledge Card, as the Vestry needs them to make their budget decisions for the upcoming year. Extra Pledge Cards can be found in the narthex or call the office 908-766-2282 to have one sent to you.
Donate Your Stocks to SJOTM
Don't forget that you can donate your Stocks to SJOTM. The tax advantages of giving stock, instead of cash, to church can make doing so very worthwhile. We would be happy to accept stock donations for 2016 as form of pledge payment. To learn more, please contact Lisa Keenan in the office at 908-766-2282 ext 13 or L.Keenan@SJOTM.org.
