Gifts from retirement plans via IRA rollovers

Gifts from retirement plans via IRA rollovers

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD), otherwise known as IRA charitable rollovers or IRA gifts allow individuals age 70 ½ and over to donate up to $105,000 in individual retirement account (IRA) assets. It’s also tax-free and not included in a donor’s adjusted gross income.

How it works:

Individuals may make gifts to charity from traditional and Roth IRA accounts without any federal tax liability as long as the gifts are “qualified charitable distributions.” No charitable deduction may be taken by the owner, but distributions will qualify for all or part of an IRA owner’s Required Minimum Distribution.

Requirements for “qualified charitable distributions”:

  • Gifts are tax-free up to $105,000 per year
  • Gifts will qualify for all or part of your Required Minimum Distribution
  • IRA holder must be age 70 ½ or older at the time of the gift
  • Gifts must be outright gifts to a charitable organization
  • Distributions may only be made from traditional IRAs or Roth IRAs
