Existing Tax Rules Santa Glaus In Mount Union President Calls For Extention WASHINGTON UPI Tax payers who profit from their charities are major targets of the tax reform bill being debated in the senate Bjt not as nrjch as in the housepassed measure Maybe you dont know it but there are ways of giving to charity and finishingup with more money than you started with You heard it right the first time There are gimmicks in the tax law so that sornr wealthy people can give whopping amounts to charity and be left with more cash in the bank than if they hadnt been charitable at all For example a businessman finds he will finish the year in the 70 per cent income tax bracket From there on for every of individual income he keeps only the Internal Revenue Service IRS gets He mght just as well be charitable so with his tax lawyer they work out a deal where his charity will not only cost him nothing but hell profit from it Heres how he Joes it The businessman gives say of his inventory to som favorite charity Its a bone fide deal The inventory is worth on the market and the charity can get that amount for it The merchandise or property or whatever it happens to be only cost the businessman If he had sold that inventory and given the cash to the charity he would have had to pay in taxes 70 per cent of the gain So he saves that in individual income taxes But thats not all As a second benefit he is allowed to deduct the full the charitable organization will get from the fair market of the inventory And that means he saves more in taxes on other income he acquired just so long as he hasnt gone beyond a 30 per cent ceiling on Contd on Page 9 F rlUdy WASHINGTON UPI Friday November 28 the day votes today on a youngsters in the Mount Union proposal to allow the income area want to
