The timing of charitable gifts is completely within your control. Unlike other tax deductions such as mortgage interest, property taxes and medical expenses, you choose which gifts to make, when to give and which property to give. Although most people do not give primarily for the tax benefits they receive, prudent planning does result in special benefits. As you plan your giving this year, you might as well act to maximize the amount of your tax savings when filing your tax return next April. As you consider making a specific gift to public broadcasting, remember that securities and other types of property that have increased in value are still generally deductible at full fair market value. If you itemize, you may be able to deduct not only what you paid for the securities, but also the “paper profit” in the investment. If you donate publicly-traded stocks you’ve owned for more than one year to a qualified charitable organization such as WTIU through the IU Foundation, you may completely bypass capital gains tax that would have become payable if you had sold the securities instead of donating them for charitable purposes. Consequently, gifts of appreciated property may produce a double tax benefit and can often be made at a much lower after-tax cost than a comparable gift of cash.

What about a drop in value? Consider selling any investment that has declined in value then donate the cash proceeds from the sale. The desired effect of the deductible loss combined with a charitable gift is minimizes the financial impact of the loss. Of course, always consult with your financial advisor or attorney.

Last January, WTIU proudly supported Bill Moyers’ return to public television. While most of our viewers have been enjoying his latest series, we’ve heard from a few of you about the program being on too late. It has always been a challenge to introduce a new series – especially when there are dedicated audiences for existing programs. Additionally, Moyers & Company is not a PBS-distributed program, meaning that we had to make tough decisions in order to be able to carve out a spot for this viewer favorite in our primetime lineup. One of the ways WTIU makes programming decisions is through viewer feedback. In order to garner more feedback, this May, we plan to experiment with scheduling Moyers & Company on our main channel (30.1), in timeslots currently occupied by Charlie Rose (Fridays at 5pm); McLaughlin Group and To the Contrary (Saturdays at 3:30-4:30pm); and History programming (Sundays at 1pm) The experiment will take place between May 11-20, and will affect two episodes of each of the aforementioned series. Comments from viewers like you could help us to find a better place for Moyers & Company. Let us know what you think by calling our audience response line at (812) 855-0501, or by sending an e-mail to wtiu@indiana.edu.

Sherlock Unleashed - Again Rejoin the 21st-century team of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, as they battle the worst that modern criminality has to offer. The struggle goes on in 21st century London as the updated team of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson battle the worst that modern criminality has to offer, including a computer-savvy archvillain who wants to rule the world. Each of the three episodes in the new season is pegged to a classic Sherlock Holmes story by Arthur Conan Doyle—delightfully, weirdly, wittily, and briskly updated, of course. Critics were astounded by Sherlock, Series 1, calling it “wonderfully weird” (Wall Street Journal), “unabashedly entertaining” (USA Today), “absorbedly witty and brisk” (Washington Post), “tremendously clever” (Entertainment Weekly), and just plain “delightful” (TV Guide). Benedict Cumberbatch was judged “a Sherlock for the 21st century” (San Francisco Chronicle), and Martin Freeman was called “masterfully deadpan...far more than a mere foil to Holmes” (Zap2it).

A Scandal in Belgravia Sunday, May 6 at 9pm

Picking up from last season’s gripping conclusion, Sherlock and Watson are plunged into a case of blackmail involving crafty dominatrix Irene Adler, whose motto is “know when you are beaten.” It seems she has incriminating photos of a session with a British royal. Can she outsmart Sherlock at his own game—and at a battle he is ill prepared to wage: love?

The Hounds of Baskerville Sunday, May 13 at 9pm

Sherlock and Watson pursue the trail of the Baskerville experiments—top-secret government research on genetically engineered gigantic animals for military use. Or so it is rumored. Whatever the truth, something big is up on the moors.

The Reichenbach Fall Sunday, May 20 at 9pm

In what may be the climatic case of his career, Sherlock faces Moriarty’s diabolical plot to “get Sherlock,” which begins innocently enough when the criminal mastermind breaks into where the Crown Jewels are held. As the scheme unfolds, Moriarty poses the “final problem,” and a tabloid reporter reveals the “shocking truth” about the great detective.
