As the year is coming to an end, it is time to start year-end tax planning and we hope you will consider making good use of the income tax charitable deduction by supporting the Springfield Symphony. Your year-end gift can significantly reduce your income taxes, while providing significant support for the Orchestra.
If you itemize, you can almost always lower your income taxes through charitable giving. Your tax bracket will determine the amount of the income tax savings you will receive.
Example: If you are in a 33% income tax bracket and you itemize your deductions, a $1,000 gift to us by December 31 will save you $330 in 2006 taxes.
Giving is, of course, much more than tax brackets and charitable deductions. Your charitable gifts support the mission we share—to improve the quality of life in our region.
