The Charitable IRA Rollover is BACK!!

The Charitable IRA Rollover allows people to make tax-free distributions from Traditional or Roth Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA) to qualified non-profit organizations, such as The Public Access Television Corporation (PATV).

If you are 70 1/2 or older, you may request direct transfers from your IRA in any amount, up to $100,000 to a charity before December 31, 2017, without reporting it as taxable income. Thus, it may be possible for couples who each have separate IRA accounts to transfer up to $200,000 between now and the end of 2017. The total amount of your contribution will count towards your required minimum distribution (RMD), and you may exclude up to $100,000 of the gift from your federal gross income-resulting in a lower taxable income and possible tax savings.
