Charitable IRA Rollover Legislation Renewed for 2015

Dec 19, 2015

Congress has renewed the Charitable IRA Rollover for 2015.

The charitable IRA rollover, or qualified charitable distribution (QCD), is a special provision allowing certain donors to exclude from taxable income -- and count toward their required minimum distribution -- certain transfers of Individual Retirement Account (IRA) assets that are made directly to public charities, including Northwest Public Radio through the WSU Foundation.

Donors age 70-1/2 or older can use this popular option to support charities with tax-wise gifts of up to $100,000. Rollovers can count toward your minimum required distribution.

When you talk to your financial advisor or IRA agency to request a charitable rollover, the following information may be helpful. Charitable contributions to Northwest Public Radio are directed to
