Thoughts on giving

The New Year is coming, and it
is time to think of taxes and how
we can lessen the amount that we
will be paying in April of next year.
The Tax Cuts and Job Act (TCJA)
that went into effect in December
of 2017 was designed to lower
our overall tax burden, but it also
eliminated the tax benefits for most
charitable donations.
The TCJA nearly doubled the
standard deduction for individuals
and couples and it may not make
sense for people who have itemized
in the past to do so this year. One
group of people, however, still have
an incentive to make donations to
a charitable group. If you are 70 ½
