Important Information about Year End Giving
Please be reminded of tax rules governing end of year contributions:
1) The general rule is that a contribution is effective when delivered.
- If you want your gifts to be included on your contribution statement for 2018, please make sure they are received by the church (or postmarked) by December 31. This means that a check placed in the church offering in January 2019 cannot be included in 2018 even if it is backdated to 2018.
- To ensure the deductibility of your church contributions, do not file your income tax return until you have received a written acknowledgment of your contributions from the church. Some of your contributions may not be tax-deductible if you file your tax return before receiving a written acknowledgment of your contributions from the church.
2) If you wish to make a stock gift to the church, please contact Judy Goerges, Controller, for the church's brokerage account information (317-842-5649, ext. 225). It is important to begin the process of transferring stock well ahead of the end of December if you wish the transaction to be completed before year end.
