A fall tax tip: If you are at least age 70½, you can use your
IRA to make donations directly from the IRA to a nonprofit
without it being income to you, so you avoid paying taxes on the
amount. Such a donation counts toward the annual required
minimum distribution. It’s a great way to make the most of an
end-of-year contribution to the Sheffield Land Trust.
It’s always a good time to enjoy one of the Land Trust’s community
trails. Ashley Falls Woods has nearly three miles of looping
trails. The shorter Deborah Reich Trail winds through woods
from Salisbury Rd. (by the cemetery) to the back of the
Southern Berkshire Regional School District campus.
Trails at Bow Wow Woods, a forested property
on Bow Wow Road and Route 41,
protected by the Sheffield and Egremont Land Trusts
will soon be open to the public!
