(Kent, Connecticut) – On Saturday, November 23 at 2:00 p.m. in the Reading Room, the Kent Memorial Library will present a financial workshop: Charitable Tax Strategies-IRA Distributions and More presented by Dolores R. Schiesel, resident partner in the Kent office of Cramer & Anderson.

Charitable giving can be of benefit in a number of ways. Not only can it keep non-profit organizations in operation, it can result in smart ways to reduce taxes for the donor. In this presentation, we will discuss some of those techniques. The talk will cover both estate planning to reduce the impact of estate taxes and gifting during your lifetime to reduce income taxes. More and more baby boomers are reaching the age when they are forced to take minimum required distributions from retirement funds, often creating tax issues. Learn how your minimum required distribution can help your favorite cause.
