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 Rozella Kennedy.
