THE CAP IN FUNDS RAN OUT ON MAY 9, 2013. TO CONTRIBUTE FOR 2014, PLEASE CONTACT ALLISON FELDMAN AT firstname.lastname@example.org
NEW!! Partners in s-corps, LLC’s or partnerships can receive a tax credit for up to $10,000! Ask me for 2014 forms.
Effective, January 1, 2013 a Member of an LLC, a Partner in Partnership, or a Shareholder in an S Corporation can each contribute up to $10,000 to the ALEF Fund. Taxpayers who own an interest in more than one entity can aggregate that income in determining their contribution level. If you have already contributed to ALEF Fund for 2013, you must deduct that amount, for a total of no more than $10,000.
If both spouses earn income from flow thru entities, then both can contribute up the $10,000 limit.
Your share of income on your K-1’s can be offset up to 6%, which is the State of Georgia tax rate. Your filing status does not impact this calculation.
|K-1 Income||Alef Fund Limit|
|$166,667 or more||$10,000|
The computation and contribution is made at the individual level.
If you are subject to Alternative Minimum Tax, you could save 29% of your contribution amount. If you have any questions, please contact your tax advisor or you may contact Mitchell Kopelman, CPA, ALEF Fund Treasurer, at Habif, Arogeti and Wynne, LLP at Mitchell.email@example.com.
Just like the current $2,500 limit for individuals, this contribution is treated as a Charitable Donation for purposes of Federal Itemized Deductions, but not for State purposes. The amount is then treated as a State tax credit against your State of Georgia income tax.
