Planned Giving: IRA Charitable Rollover
Last year Congress changed IRA laws with the SECURE Act. Before the Act, taxpayers aged 70½ or older had to take a minimum distribution from their IRA. Now the age is 72. An opportunity that remains in place is to direct some or all of these distributions to charity and not pay taxes on the distribution. Contact your IRA administrator to tell them you intend to make a “qualified charitable distribution” to Literacy Together.
