NEW! HOT ROD DISPLAY IN ROUTE 66 GALLERY
On display starting March 11
When you think of all the unique vehicles America has brought to the world, the iconic hot rod has to be at or near the top of that list. Equally iconic in automotive lore is that most fabled of American roads… Route 66. That we’ve combined them in our refreshed Route 66: Dream of the Mother Road exhibit is only natural.

FUEL FOR THOUGHT
Reduce taxes while saving for retirement
How can I let Uncle Sam help fund my future?
 
The tax code provides a number of ways for taxpayers to put money aside for retirement in ways that reduce their current and/or future taxes. Whether you work for an employer or are self-employed, you have a host of tax-favored options from which to choose. The ever popular individual retirement account (IRA) has evolved  into a variety of forms since it was first introduced in 1974, each with its own regulations on maximum contributions and deductibility of contributions. The newest version, the Roth IRA, even provides for tax-free withdrawals for retirement. Even with these advances, many people would still like to have more options to strengthen their financial security in retirement in ways that produce tax benefits. If you are a taxpayer with significant charitable goals, you do just that.
 
Please contact Matt Taylor at 253.683.3950 to learn more about how an estate gift could benefit your family and help with the long-term sustainability of ACM.
