More on gifts of cash
Did you know that you can mail a check on December 31st, and the IRS will allow you to take a deduction in the year the check was mailed, as long as it is postmarked December 31st, even if the check is not received and cashed by UNCF until after the new year? Keep this in mind for year-end tax planning!
