ATTENTION SENIORS: With tax time just around the corner, some changes in the tax law for 2006 and 2007 might be worth looking into.  If you are age 70 1/2 and are required to take mandatory withdrawals from your retirement accounts, you can do so without paying tax on the withdrawal and still get the deduction if you have the contribution made directly to Holy Cross Church.  You can have any or all of the distribution sent to your favorite charity.  See or call your tax preparer or financial advisor for details.
