If you plan to take the
standard deduction for individuals and families
in 2018 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 thisyear 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! :-) HAPPYNEWYEAR!
