House Passes Charitable Giving Tax Breaks

LawThe “America Gives More Act of 2014” passed in the House earlier this month. If passed the act will extend the charitable IRA rollover and the enhanced conservation easement breaks which have expired. The act would also enact two new charitable giving tax breaks, which include extending the time to make charitable gifts to the tax return due date and changing the two tier excise tax for investment earnings by private foundations to a flat 1% rate.
