If you plan to donate stock, please advise LeAnne Lane (firstname.lastname@example.org or 804-288-1131) so proper credit can be given to you. Also if you have donated stock to the Church and have not let us know of your donation, please contact LeAnne. All stock contributions must be received into the Church’s investment account by Monday, December 31, 2018.
To ensure the deductibility of your church contributions, please do not file your 2018 income tax return until you have received your year-end contributions statement from the church. Under IRS rules, you may lose your deduction for some or all of your contributions if you file your tax return before receiving a written acknowledgement of your 2018 contributions from the church.
Contribution statements will be mailed out in early December, please take the time to review your statement to ensure your contributions have been properly designated. If you have any questions regarding your statement please contact LeAnne or set up a meeting with her. You may also check your statement online through Access ACS throughout the year.
