As a friendly reminder, here are some year-end giving dates you need to know when making gifts that impact your 2016 income tax.
Gifts that arrive by the dates below will help ensure that your 2016 gift will qualify for a charitable income tax deduction yet this year.
• USPS – must be postmarked on or before December 31, 2016.
• Private carrier – must be physically received at WCI office on or before December 30, 2016.
• Appreciated securities – no later than December 23, 2016. Earlier notification is better!
• Credit card gifts – completed by 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 29, 2016 – which will allow time for them to be processed and forwarded.
If you have any questions, or want to confirm that WCI did receive your gift, please don’t hesitate to call our office at 1-800-735-2239.
