NEW TAX LAWS
Individuals with traditional or a ROTH IRA have a required minimum distribution when they reach age 70 ½. The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015, P.L. 114-113 provides a powerful tax incentive for charitable giving. Individuals can donate directly from their IRA to a charity or church, all or a portion of their required minimum distribution (RMD). By donating directly you do not claim the RMD as income or pay taxes. *Please refer to your financial adviser to explore further how to give directly from your IRA.
Guidelines for the IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution
• Gifts will qualify for all or part of your Required Minimum Distribution.
• The provision for this type of gift is now permanent.
• The IRA holder must be at least 70.5 years old at the time of distribution.
• Gifts are tax-free up to $100,000.
• Gifts must be outright gifts to a charitable organization.
• Gifts may only be made from traditional or Roth IRA accounts.
Benefits of the IRS Qualified Charitable Distribution
• Avoid taxes on transfers of up to $100,000 from your IRA to the charitable organization.
• Satisfy your required minimum distribution.
• Reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions.
• Make a gift that is not subject to the 50% deduction limits on charitable gifts.
• Increase your ability to help further the mission of your choice.
