Deductions in 2018
As you may know, there have been some changes to the rules about itemizing deductions in 2018, but there are still many ways you can support RAM (a registered 501 C3 Not-for-Profit Organization) AND enjoy tax benefits.

If you are 70-and-a-half years old or older, the IRS requires you to start withdrawing from most types of tax-advantaged retirement accounts. You must also take Required Minimum Distributions (RMD’s) from retirement accounts you inherit. For most people, the deadline for taking an RMD is December 31, 2018. If you miss the deadline or take less than you’re supposed to, you could be subject to a 50% tax penalty. If you choose to support RAM’s mission in this way, simply inform your financial advisor of the following information:
