May Not be Too Late for a 2012 Charitable Tax Deduction

The New Year is in full swing, but many of our supporters can still make tax-deductible contributions to qualified charities such as the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation or Lupus Research Institute.

Thanks to an extension of the American Taxpayer Relief Act, throughout January 2013, if you are at least 70.5 yearsyou can donate up to $100,000 directly from an IRA account to the charity of your choice as a 2012 donation. The contribution will not incur federal income tax or penalties for withdrawing monies from the IRA early.

We hope you will consider this tax relief Act as a second-chance to support the very best in lupus science and service. While your donation turns back the clock to 2012, it will help drive the discoveries of the future.

Please consult your financial advisor or accountant for specific information.
