The final month of the year is upon us. We recommend considering the following steps, if applicable to you:
·Charitable giving: If you have any donations to make, consider using Qualified Charitable Distributions if over 70 ½, or appreciated securities from taxable accounts. Either of these may be more tax-efficient than cash contributions.
·Adjust retirement plan contributions: A few weeks ago, we shared the updated contribution amounts. Making those adjustments effective for Jan 1 can insure that you maximize contributions..

We have much to be grateful for. We live in a prosperous time. Many of the dangers that were commonplace for our ancestors are far from our personal experience. We face other challenges they did not have to deal with, but as another Thanksgiving comes, we can’t help but feel that gratitude.
We are thankful for the trust and excellent relationships we enjoy with you. This week, some things to be thankful for.
