KETRA Web Seminar

Important New Tax Savings for Religious

Amy Hereford will present a special one-hour web conference on February 14, 2006 discussing a new tax law and how to take advantage of the tax savings it provides. The program will be archived for later viewing by those unable to attend the web conference. Registered participants in the live web conference will be able to see and hear the presenter and see slides and documents by logging into the conference web site. Participants can pose questions during the presentation or during a Q&A session at the end of the conference. Katrina Emergency Tax Relief Act of 2005 (KETRA) has special provisions allowing thousands of dollars in tax savings for members of religious orders with taxable income. A single religious with $35,000 in taxable income could save approximately $2,000; that could mean as much as $5,000,000 in tax savings across the country for religious with taxable income in 2005. All religious with taxable income and charitable contributions to their order will be able to take advantage of the Hurricane Katrina Tax Relief package. Contributions to a religious order are qualified contributions for this tax relief package, even if contributions were not directed to Hurricane Katrina relief. Amy Hereford is a Sister of St. Joseph of Carondelet from St. Louis and an attorney licensed to practice before the US Tax Court. She worked at the Legal Resource Center for Religious as Associate Director and a staff attorney and edited that office’s Taxes Notebook and counseled religious orders on taxation of their members.
