Quality health services and community support have been the tradition at O’Connor Hospital since we opened our doors in 1889. Whether for the birth of a baby or a life-saving surgery, our reputation for medical excellence, superior skills and advanced technology precedes us. Learn More.
On Saturday, March 9, 2013 the O’Connor Hospital Volunteer Advisory Council presents a Spring Fling Fashion Show and Luncheon at Mariani’s Inn and Restaurant in Santa Clara from 10:00 am to 1:45 pm. Fashions from Designers Corner will be featured. The cost to attend is $45 per person. All proceeds will benefit the O’Connor Hospital Family Center. For ticket information, please call (408) 283-7766.
For tax purposes, we have estimated the fair market value of the event to be $25 per person. Therefore, your tax deductible donation is the difference between your cost and the fair market value. A contribution without attending is fully deductible.
The IRA Charitable rollover is back for 2012 and 2013
Donors age 70 ½ or older are eligible to move up to $100,000 from their IRAs directly to qualified charities without having to pay income taxes on the money. Recognizing the lateness of the extension, Congress has provided two special transition rules:
Qualified distribution made by Feb. 1, 2013, may be counted retroactively for the 2012 tax year.
A taxpayer, who took a distribution from an IRA in December 2012, may make a contribution to a qualified charity before Feb. 1, 2013, and treat this as a direct transfer.
Estate, gift and generation-skipping taxes: The 2013 tax law permanently preserves the current individual gift, estate and generation-skipping tax to a unified $5 million exemption. This amount will be indexed for inflation each year. The top estate and gift tax rates will rise from 35 percent to 40 percent. The annual gift tax exclusion—the amount you can give to anyone gift-tax-free each year—is now $14,000 ($28,000 for married couples).
