Tips on how the new tax plan may affect you

     The new t ax plan approved by Congress is why we are emailing you.  

     If you plan to take the  standard deduction for individuals and families  in 201 8  which will be $24,000  for married couples, doubling the past amount then you may need to read this mail. Otherwise, ignore it.

    Since the standard deduction has almost doubled, if you take it,  your charitable contributions next year are NO LONGER DEDUCTIBLE.  You may need to speed up your donations  this   year to get the tax deduction. 

    The tax experts have advised that you are to "bunch" your donations this year,  or  in a future year when You are NOT taking the standard deduction.  

      Only 4 days left before 2018 arrives!  :-)   HAPPY NEW YEAR!
