Tax Planning Can Make A Difference for You & UNC-TV A gift to UNC-TV makes a difference—and benefits you, too! Finishing your taxes? Plan now to pay less next year. Tax laws have changed, but the advantages of contributing to charities remains. Gifts support UNC-TV’s ability to be a vital resource in information, education, entertainment and emergency communications for all of North Carolina and beyond. Plan this year to make a gift which can include such benefits as income tax and capital gains tax avoidance and perhaps lifetime income. While a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your IRA is still a great gift, you may want to revisit your estate plan to ensure new SECURE Act limitations don’t come between you and your philanthropic goals. We appreciate your support. To learn more, visit unctvgift.org or contact us at giftplanning@unctv.org or 877-485-3200.
