Gift of Property

Retirement Account Required Mandatory Distribution

The 2015 Qualified Charitable Distribution rule has changed the laws about Retirement Account Distributions. Previously, at age 70.5, you were required to draw a minimum amount from any IRA (not Roth IRA) and employer-sponsored retirement plan holdings. Now, you can have all or part of this distribution transferred directly from your IRA to a qualified charity (such as the Women’s Foundation of California) – up to $100,000 per taxpayer, per year. While these contributions are not classified as a tax-deductible charitable gift, you will be spared paying income tax on this distribution. For more information, please contact Stephanie Green.
