Key Provisions: (Read More by Clicking Here)
The charitable deduction will continue to be coupled with an individual's or household's corresponding tax rate. In other words, there is no cap on charitable deductions.
- The tax rate will be increased to 39.6 percent for individuals making more than $400,000 a year and households making more than $450,000. The previous rate for those earners was 35 percent.
- The estate tax will have a $10 million exemption for couples, $5 million for individuals, and a top tax rate of 40 percent.
- Additional benefits for the long-term unemployed are extended through the end of 2013. Those benefits expired this past Friday.
- A two-month delay of the sequestration cuts.
- The bill extends the IRA charitable rollover through December 31, 2013. This provision permits tax-free distributions to an eligible charity from an IRA held by someone age 70½ or older of up to $100,000 per taxpayer, per taxable year. The provision includes two transition rules to allow donors to make 2012 contributions. First, the extension allows individuals who received an IRA distribution in December 2012 to elect to count that distribution (or a portion thereof) as a 2012 IRA charitable rollover if the individual transfers the amount in cash before February 1, 2013, to an eligible charity. Additionally, the extension allows donors to make distributions directly to eligible charities before February 1, 2013, and elect to have such distributions treated as qualified charitable distributions in 2012. This change may be of particular benefit to donors who would like to take advantage of the rollover in both 2012 and 2013.
- The legislation did not prevent a temporary reduction in the Social Security payroll tax from expiring on Monday, December 31. Therefore, the workers’ share of the Social Security payroll tax that had been lowered from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent for the past two years will return to 6.2 percent.
