The IRS today published tax reminders regarding year-end giving. Contributions to charity predominated and included a program for seniors over 70 ½ years who own IRAs. The program expires on 12/31/13. Gifts up $100,000 may be made to an eligible charity.
The announcement also includes reminders about charitable gifts of clothing and other tangible items as well as access to a list of eligible charities. It also includes links to YouTube videos that further explain the tips.
