IRA Charitable Rollovers Explained

An Individual Retirement Account is an accoutn set aside with funds to be used after reitrement. Many financial institutions that offer IRAs provide tax advantages for people who have them. The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015, which was passed by Congress and signed into law by the President on December 18, 2015, made permanent what is popularly known as the Individual Retirement Account (IRA) charitable rollover. This means that charitably- minded taxpayers age 70 ½ or older can transfer up to $100,000 annually from their IRA accounts directly to a charity without first having to recognize the distribution as income.

Simply put, you can use your IRA to transfer up to $100,000 each year to a charity without being taxed.
