Charitable IRA Contributions

The Charitable IRA Rollover provides taxpayers 72 or older (70½ if you turned 70½ in 2019), with a mechanism for transferring their annual Required Minimum Distributions (RMD) up to $100,000 in IRA assets directly to charitable organizations, like TAE, in order to exclude the distributions from their taxable income while simultaneously supporting the charities of their choice, like TAE. This rollover is an attractive option for taxpayers who either do not want or do not need the extra taxable income from their IRA’s required minimum distribution.
