Use Your IRA To Make a Charitable Gift – Update for 2013
In the midst of the economic crisis in 2008, Congress passed a bill intended to help stabilize the financial system. It included an incentive to qualifying American taxpayers to make charitable contributions from their IRAs. The IRA Charitable Rollover tax incentive allowed individuals aged 70½ and older to donate up to $100,000 from their Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and Roth IRAs to public charities without having to count the distributions as taxable federal income.
The recent legislation to avoid the fiscal cliff included the following extension to this incentive:
- Any qualified charitable distribution made after December 31, 2012, and before February 1, 2013, shall be deemed to have been made on December 31, 2012.
This means that an individual has until February 1, 2013 to make a charitable distribution from his/her IRA directly to a qualified charitable organization in an amount up to $100,000 and have it counted as a 2012 distribution. This individual can also make an additional distribution before December 31, 2013 of up to $100,000 and have it counted as a 2013 distribution. Please consult with a financial professional to see if this is right for you. (Updated January 8, 2013)
