Tax Incentives to Giving to the McCabe Church Foundation
Leaving money to the McCabe Church Foundation can provide significant tax benefits for donors. Charitable contributions to qualified organizations like the McCabe Church Foundation can be deducted from your federal and state income taxes, potentially reducing your income, capital gains, and estate taxes. In addition, North Dakota allows a state income tax credit of 40 percent for gifts of at least $5,000 in value up to a maximum credit of $10,000 per person, or $20,000 per married couple.
If you choose to leave your entire estate to charity, then you will pay no estate tax. However, it’s important to note that total charitable contributions can’t exceed 60% of someone’s adjusted gross income for the year. If it does, that person can’t deduct all of their donations for the current tax year.
Donations to a private foundation could allow for an immediate tax deduction—up to 30 percent of adjusted gross income for cash gifts and up to 20 percent of adjusted gross income for long-term appreciated publicly traded assets. Before making any sizable gift, it’s recommended to seek advice from a tax professional as gift tax rules can be complex and can change over time, and individual circumstances must be considered.
