    Tax Reform and Its Impact on Planned Giving

    On December 22, 2017, the President signed into law an “Act to provide for reconciliation pursuant to titles II and V of the concurrent resolution on the budget for fiscal year 2018.”  In response to the passage of this legislation, there has been some alarm in the charitable community about the impact on charitable giving. As a service to our customers and followers, PG Calc has prepared an analysis to answer many of these questions.  The intention of the analysis is twofold. First, it explains which laws affecting planned giving have changed and which laws remain intact. Second, it offers five suggestions on the best ways donors can continue to make tax-efficient planned gifts. Note that article refers to the law as the “Tax Reform Act” for convenience.  You can find this article, Tax Reform and Its Impact on Planned Giving, by Jeff Lydenberg, in our knowledgebase.


    Working With Younger Donors

    The average age of a gift annuitant at the time of gift is 79*. Nonetheless, there are planned giving solutions that can be attractive to donors who are still in their 50s or 60s. Applying lessons from the latest research on donor behavior, this Webinar will present gift ideas that will appeal to America’s 76 million baby boomers.

    PGM Updated for 2017 Tax Act

    PG Calc released Planned Giving Manager 7.5 (PGM) on January 30, 2018. This update features tax tables updated to reflect changes under the 2017 Tax Act, including the new $11.18 million* estate, gift, and generation skipping tax exemption and new income tax rates and brackets for trusts. PGM also includes references to the new 60% of AGI limit on gifts of cash to public charities, and options regarding the deductibility of state taxes from federal income tax and the scheduled expiration of the increased transfer tax exemption after 2025.

    Please contact PG Calc Client Services at support@pgcalc.com or 888-474-2252 if you have any questions about these updates.

    * This amount has not yet been confirmed by the IRS. If the IRS announces a transfer tax exemption that is higher or lower than $11.18 million, PG Calc will update PGM with the correct rate.
