You Can Make a Tax-Free Distribution from Your IRA Account
As we approach the end of 2018 many will be discussing their Required Minimum Distribution with their IRA provider. Using a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) is a tax-savvy strategy that allows you to transfer up to $100,000 per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity. It is only available to IRAs and individuals who have reached Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) age (70.5). Any amount processed as a QCD counts toward your RMD requirement and reduces the taxable amount of your IRA distribution. This lowers both your adjusted gross income and taxable income, resulting in a lower overall tax liability.
Here’s how it works:You must be 70½ or older at the time of distribution.
- You may distribute any amount up to $100,000 in a calendar year to charity, as long it is completed by December 31 of the year in which you intend to make the charitable distribution.
- Your IRA administrator must make the distribution directly to the charity, or you may write a check payable to the charity from your IRA checkbook. For a sample letter of instruction to your IRA administrator requesting a distribution click here: Letter to IRA Administrators for 2019 Distributions
- If you make a gift to Cokesbury from your IRA, please include written instructions on how you would like to designate your gift by making a note on your IRA check. You can also call 850-476-5818 or email [email protected] with your gift designation.
Before proceeding, you should also consult with your tax advisor or IRA plan representative to discuss your particular situation including any impact most recent tax laws.
