Giving Directly from an IRA
Did you know?
While the new tax law brought many changes to households across the nation, one thing that remains the same and is now permanent is the Charitable IRA Rollover Act. This allows donors age 70 ½ or older to donate up to $100,000 from their IRA without having to recognize the distribution as income.
We advise that before taking any actions you should consult with a qualified tax advisor, but if you’re receiving taxable income from retirement plan assets there are a number of tax-advantaged ways to make these assets work for you and qualified nonprofits like SAHC.
Something to remember is the transfer is not deductible, the amount you are giving does not count as taxable income and this can often reduce your taxable income
Here’s an example: If your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) is $20,000 and you give a $5,000 Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) to SAHC only $15,000 of the IRA distribution will be reported as part of your income.
If this is applicable to you – it’s easy to do. To take advantage of the IRA charitable distribution, the distribution must be sent directly from your IRA manager to SAHC. Contact your IRA manager and ask them to make a transfer directly to SAHC, 372 Merrimon Ave. Asheville, NC 28801.
SAHC’s non-profit tax ID# is: 62-1098890.
