The IRA Rollover has been extended and expanded!
That’s right —the recently enacted tax bill extends the IRA Charitable Rollover through 2013. It also provides a window of opportunity for you to make a gift from your IRA by January 31, 2013 and have it count towards your 2012 charitable contributions.
The Charitable IRA Rollover provisions permit a person who is 70 ½ or older to make tax-free outright gifts in any amount up to a total of $100,000 from a traditional or Roth IRA directly to qualified charities. Your church and our KBC and SBC agencies and institutions are “qualified charities”. Private foundations and donor advised funds are not.
You are not entitled to a charitable income tax deduction for your IRA Charitable Rollover distributions. They do, however, count as part of your required minimum distribution.
Your IRA Charitable Rollover gifts for 2012 must be completed by Jan. 31, 2013. You have until December 31, 2013 to make another $100,000 in IRA Rollover gifts for 2013.
