A special alert for anyone at least 70 ½ years of age: If you hold IRAs, this might be your last chance to take advantage of special federal legislation, set to expire December 31, 2007. This legislation allows persons in this age group to direct withdrawals of up to $100,000 per year to charitable institutions like The Seeing Eye and avoid paying related income tax.
We would be happy to explain further the Charitable IRA Rollover or the other range of legacy gifts that would suit your needs. If we can help, please contact Peg Harris, Major Gifts and Planned Giving Officer, 973-539-6520 or .
