With tax season in full swing, most of us have taxes on our mind. If you owe income taxes for 2016, we want to help you change that situation for 2017. This is a great time to consider how you can reduce your 2016 tax liability while providing much needed support to The Arc of Texas now.

If you are age 70 or older and own a traditional IRA, you will need to take a required minimum distribution (RMD) from it. This is mandated by the federal government. In fact, the government imposes a significant penalty on those who do not take their RMD. If you find yourself in this position and are already planning to make a gift to The Arc of Texas in 2016, you could make a gift of some or all of your RMD.

Did you know that by making your gift using an IRA charitable rollover (a direct transfer from your account to The Arc of Texas) you will not pay income taxes on that amount which is given as a gift? Since there is no tax deduction available on the transfer, this type of gift can work well even for those who do not itemize their taxes.
