Deadlines For You 2018 Donations

Year-End Contributions Deadlines

The IRS has very firm rules regarding donations

Please keep in mind the following deadlines for contributions credited to the 2018 tax year.

Investment Securities Transfers:

Transfer completed by midnight on December 31, 2018.

Cash & check contributions-delivered:

Received at the office no later than Noon on December 21, 2018, as the office will be closed the week between Christmas and New Year. Weekend and Christmas collections for December 22nd and 23th and December 29st and 30th will be included in the 2018 statements.

Cash & check contributions-mailed:

Postmarked no later than midnight on December 31, 2018.   Bank Transfers & Credit Card contributions: Self-managed requests can be made using our website: http://www.nativitycatholicchurch.net/admin/autowithdrawal/. Requests for processing by Nativity must be received at the office no later than Noon on December 21, 2018. (The IRS requires that transactions must be completed by December 31, 2018.)

Remember, backdating a check to 2018 and then mailing it or delivering it after December 31, 2018, DOES NOT qualify. The IRS is very firm about this. It is important that we follow the IRS rules in order to maintain our tax exempt status.
