From Executive Director Donna Beyer: There's Still Time to Make a Difference - act now!
As the year is coming to a close, there's still time to do a mitzvah and make a difference in the lives of hundreds of congregants and Tucsonans by making charitable contributions for the 2012 tax year to Temple Emanu-El and to the Mitzvah Corps.
Your charitable donations to Temple Emanu-El are essential to the health and vibrancy of our congregation, a leader in Jewish worship, study, community engagement, and celebration, and also enable us to help the hundreds of people who count on Temple for assistance. Temple Emanu-El is here to help those who are in need this winter, as we have done for 100 winters in the past, and will continue to do for 100 winters more. Your charitable contributions to Temple Emanu-El are tax deductible, and are needed now more than ever.
Mitzvah Corp is a qualifying charitable organization that provides services to Arizona residents who need temporary assistance. Your contribution to the Mitzvah Corps is treated by the Arizona Department of Revenue as a tax credit, which means that the amount contributed is subtracted directly from the taxes owed to the state of Arizona. Keep in mind that the amount contributed must not exceed one's overall tax liability, and your contribution must be dated no later than December 31, 2012. The maximum amount of credit is $200 for individuals, $400 for couples filing jointly. For questions about Temple Emanu-El Mitzvah Corp, contact Jill Rich at (520) 349-0174 or your tax advisor.
