No Expiration Date On Charitable IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution Tax Benefits

In December 2015, Congress made some popular charitable giving tax incentives permanent–including the charitable IRA qualified charitable distribution incentive. Now donors can now plan their giving through IRA qualified charitable distribution any time of the year. 

The charitable IRA qualified charitable distribution is a provision allowing certain donors to exclude from taxable income — yet count toward their required minimum distribution — certain transfers of Individual Retirement Account (IRA) assets that are made directly to public charities, including Northwest Public Broadcasting 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. Qualified charitable distributions can count toward your minimum required distribution.

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