A SUCCESSFUL DEER HUNT for Jason Vollmer of Moorhead after harvesting this t 2 point buck on Saturday, Nov. 6 during the firearms season. Recent economic conditions have made it vital that people make careful choices about how to spend, how to save, and how to give. It is times such as these that make us truly appreciate our loyal and dedicated donors of the Big Stone Health Care Foundation. Although we don't always want to, taking time to determine the best ways to give is time well spent. By consci- entiously considering the structure and timing of your gifts, you may find that you are able to make gifts you had not thought possible! As you consider your charitable giv- ing for what remains of the year, keep in mind that gifts made now can gen- erate income tax deductions that could help reduce your tax bill for 2010. The amount of your savings depends on tax rates and how much of your gifts you are allowed to deduct. A visit with your tax advisor or fi- nancial planner can help you make your decision concerning the 'how' and the 'what' to give. A few things to think about: Gifts of cash are most commonly made through cash, checks or elec- tronic transfers. If you itemize your tax deductions, gifts of cash may be used to eliminate federal income tax on up to half of adjusted gross income. There may also be some savings at the state level as well. Securities, or stocks, bonds and mu- tual funds, that have re-appreciated may bring additional tax savings. These types of gifts are generally de- ductible from income tax at their full current value, but only if they have been owned for longer than one year. These may also be used to offset tax on up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. Retirement plans can also be a gift giving source. If you are over 70 and a half years of age and need to take with- drawals from an IRA or other qualified retirement account, consider using all or a portion of your mandatory with- drawal amount as a charitable gift. This could result in little or no tax im- pact when you report a withdrawn Real Girls USA teaches life skills Real Girls USA is for Real Girls who {ike to be a girly-girl from time to time.

The changes in the estate taxes mean more people find they can leave a larger legacy to loved ones that is tax free. This is also true for charitable giving purposes, whether now or in the future. If you have life insurance policies that have outlived their original pur- pose, you may be able to gift the cash value, saving immediately on income tax and possibly on state and federal estate taxes in the future As the year draws to a close, it is a good time to make certain that you have achieved your charitable objec- tives for this year. Remember that gifts must be made by Dec. 31. Feel free to contact the Big Stone Health Care Foundation for more information and be sure to visit your accountant or other financial advisors to ensure maximum tax savings and other possible financial benefits, as well as the satisfaction of maximizing your giving.
