I wish that I could report that immediate IRA giving was back on (or really close). Check out this article from ThinkAdvisor.com: http://www.thinkadvisor.com/2014/11/03/tax-extenders-bill-in-jeopardy-as-debt-limit-looms. (the cool picture is from ThinkAdvisor, too)
Not good news for nonprofits fundraisers looking for an extra boost from IRA gifts. In sum, the whole “tax extender” package is projected to cost $85 billion and no one in Congress has revealed where the funds will come from to “pay” for these tax deals. Yikes.
