Charitable IRA Rollovers

New law offers tax savings for gifts from IRAs

 

On December 18, 2015, the President signed into law legislation that retroactively extends the charitable IRA rollover for 2015 and makes this provision permanent for future years.

 

For those aged 70½ or older, it is once again possible to make tax-favored charitable gifts from traditional and Roth IRA accounts. 

 

A total of up to $100,000 can be transferred directly from traditional or Roth IRAs to one or more qualified charities such as Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary free from federal income tax each year. There may also be state income tax savings. Amounts given in this way count toward required IRA minimum withdrawal amounts for the year of the gift.

 

To make such gifts, it is important to not withdraw funds prior to a gift, but have the gift amount distributed directly from an IRA to MABTS. For those with check writing privileges on their accounts, this may be the most efficient way to make gifts directly from an IRA.

 

For more information, contact Duffy Guyton, Chief Development Officer, (901) 497-4404. Or check with your IRA administrator or tax advisor.
