Act now for IRA rollover

Congress will once again have to address several tax laws at the end of 2013 that are not only beneficial for the donor as a tax deduction but the charity as well. One of those laws is related to distributions from an IRA to a charity. Unless it is extended, it will expire December 31, 2013. As the end of the year approaches, now is the time to utilize any tax advantage still available prior to the unknowns of 2014. 
Did you know that after the age of 70 ½ a distribution is required from an IRA?

Church Merger Empowers Outreach

Located in Springfield, Ohio, a city northeast of Dayton whose economy has seen better days, Faith United Methodist Church (UMC) was born from a merger of three churches, Central, Story-Hypes, and Lagonda UMC. Merger discussions took place over five years among seven United Methodist Churches, with the goal of creating a single church whose combined resources would enable it to effectively spread the gospel and serve neighbors throughout Springfield. Three of the congregations ultimately voted to become one church in 2009.
