Special IRS Provisions

Congress has passed a bill with a provision allowing individuals to make gifts of up to $100,000 directly from your IRA to charity without having to report the distribution as taxable income on your income tax return so long as the following restrictions are met:

  • The donor must be age 70½ or over and must be required to take annual IRA distributions.

  • Total combined IRA Charitable Rollover contributions cannot exceed $100,000 in any year.

  • Charitable contributions from an IRA must go to a public charity, like Graycliff.

  • Distributions must be made from traditional Individual Retirement Accounts or Roth IRAs, but 401(k) plans are not eligible.

  • Donors cannot receive goods or services in return for the contributions.
                                                                     For more information, please see more info on the deduction

 

This provision was confirmed by Congress for 2015, and will continue for ten years.
