House Passes IRA Charitable Rollover Bill; Urge the Senate to Take Action

In July the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 4719, legislation that would permanently reinstate three charitable giving tax incentives, including the IRA Charitable Rollover provision. The bipartisan vote follows an open letter from over 850 nonprofit organizations in support of these provisions, including more than 220 museums spanning 47 states. Urge your Senators to pass this legislation!
