Charitable IRA Rollover—Only until December 31, 2014!

The Charitable IRA Rollover has been reinstated, but only until December 31, 2014. The Charitable IRA Rollover allows individuals age 70½ and older to make direct transfers up to $100,000 per year from individual retirement accounts to qualified charities without having to count the transfers as income for federal tax purposes. Since no tax is incurred on the withdrawal, gifts do not qualify for a charitable deduction, but may be counted toward an individual’s minimum required distribution.

Recap of other provisions of the Charitable IRA Rollover:

  • Distributions must be made directly to a qualified charity by the plan administrator of an IRA. Retirement assets in 401(k), 403(b), SEP, or SIMPLE plans do not qualify, but may be rolled into a new or existing IRA and transferred to the charity.
  • Distributions may only be made to 501(c)(3) tax exempt organizations and cannot be made to donor advised funds, private foundations, or supporting organizations.
  • Distributions may not be used to fund life-income gifts such as charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, or pooled income funds.
