Charitable contributions are a vital part of our social fabric. While they are intended to help recipients, they can also benefit donors when the right charitable giving strategies are used. It may seem convenient to simply write a personal check to a charity, but that should be a last resort for most taxpayers.

Carbon monoxide safety should be a top priority when the temperatures start to drop.
