With the new SECURE Act in 2020, you are required to take Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) from your retirement accounts every year once you turn 72. This can be vexing as a taxpayer, but thanks to The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act, traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA) owners can exclude their RMDs from their adjusted gross income by giving the money to a qualified charitable organization.
Qualifying Charitable Distribution
The Qualifying Charitable Distribution (QCD) or an IRA charitable rollover, gives you the ability to donate up to $100,000 per year (up to $200,000 if you’re married) directly from your IRA to charity without paying taxes.
There are a few things to keep in mind for you to be eligible. You must be at least 70½ or older to request a Qualifying Charitable Distribution (QCD). If you request a QCD prior to reaching age 70½, the distribution will be treated as taxable income. See more from the IRS.
