Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)

What is a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)?

When individuals take distributions from their IRAs, it usually counts as income for tax purposes. QCDs, also called IRA Charitable Rollovers, are an exception. Individuals 70½ years of age or older can distribute up to $100,000 each year from their IRAs to their favorite 501(c)(3) organizations without counting the distribution as income.

Making a QCD can be an option to lower your income taxes while doing good for others. If you’re age 72 or older, QCDs count toward your Required Minimum Distribution (up to $100,000), effectively lower your adjusted gross income and often bring about many tax benefits. The penalty for missing an RMD is 50% of the amount that was supposed to have been distributed.

Please consult your tax advisor for information regarding your specific exceptions.
