Congress Makes Charitable Contributions from IRA’s Tax Free. Forever!

Are you at least 70 ½, and want to build regular charitable contributions into your legacy plan using excess funds in your IRA?

In the past, you had to worry that the government might decide that donation was considered taxable income, which meant you would either had to either contribute more to cover the shortfall or give simply give less.

The good news is you never have to worry about that again because the Federal Government has made a permanent change to IRA gifting.  Starting 2016, charitable donations of up to $100,000 per year made from your IRA funds are no longer subject to any tax because the donation is excluded from your taxable income.  That means, for those of you so inclined to give-back, you can integrate a regular annual donation into your retirement plan.

And, since the law refers to Individual Retirement Accounts, your spouse can do likewise with his or her IRA funds.

A little good news for your kids….

There’s also a provision in the new law that you might want to mention to your children who are putting aside money in their IRA or in a 529 plan for their kids. The cost for computers, software, and even internet access can now be withdrawn from accumulated savings tax and penalty free — even if the school your grandchildren attend do not require a computer as a condition of enrollment.

Market Outlook 2020

January 07, 2020 Category: General

What a difference a year makes! A year ago, at this time the market was coming off a 20% correction in the fourth quarter reflecting prevailing headwinds of rising interest rate, escalating global trade tensions between the US and China, uncertainty on Brexit, and growing concerns of slowing global growth. Today conditions have calmed. Central banks around the world are dovish, including in the US, where the Fed moved to make mid-cycle adjustments in the midst of uncertainty and raised chances of extending the cycle. Likewise, around the world central banks seem accommodative with negative interest rates prevailing in several key countries around the globe. The US and China have apparently reached a Phase I trade deal and while the situation is tenuous and large structural hurdles remain in the areas of intellectual property, leaders of both countries seem to be more motivated to move toward more substantial agreements into 2020. With this backdrop, conditions appear favorable for economic

Economic Commentary: Q1

Our reference to the classic Toots and the Maytals song comes as we see a de-escalation in trade tensions with China, diminishing risks of a no-deal Brexit and few signs that the record U.S. economic expansion is ending or reversing. Still, persistent trade uncertainty is denting business confidence and spending, particularly the longer-term risk of an unravelling of the global supply chain. Our take on the major investor themes for the weeks ahead: U.S. Equites: Sector Steering Defensive sectors have outperformed cyclicals this year against a backdrop of slowing growth and falling interest rates. However, we expect central bank easing could provide a floor for growth in the coming months. Among cyclicals, we remain constructive on technology, while we prefer less rate-sensitive sectors. Developed Markets: Winter of our discontent? Trade uncertainties and slowing growth have taken a toll on developed world stocks outside the United States. But not all DMs are created equal, and

As most of you know, we have partnered with Harvest for Hunger since 2012, collecting food for the Cleveland Foodbank. Since partnering with Harvest for Hunger and the Cleveland Food bank in 2012, the food collected at our WealthWATCHSM programs, client appreciation, and other events has provided more than 43,000 meals. Thanks to all of our clients and friends who have helped us reach this amazing milestone. This year, we also had the unique opportunity to partner with Ben Curtis, the 2003 British Open Champion, and the Ben Curtis Foundation. Bens Foundation provides similar services to the food bank, but works exclusively with children in need in Kent, Ravenna, and Barberton. One in five children struggle with hunger, and Ben and his foundation are able to help more than 2,440 children in our own backyard. We also had the opportunity to partner with former Browns Coach Sam Rutigliano, and his Inner Circle Foundation. Coach Sams Foundation, a member of the International Literacy Association,
