To Give Qualified Charitable Distributions:
The SECURE Act of 2020 has made changes to the law affecting Individual Retirement Arrangements, IRAs. Required Minimum Distributions, RMD, are now required to begin in the year the owner turns 72, for those born after July 1, 1949.
The new Act still allows individuals who are over 70 ½ years old, to make Qualified Charitable Distributions, QCDs from their IRAs, as in earlier legislation. Each IRA owner can give up to $100,000 per year. These QCDs qualify as RMD (if required) for the year and are not declared as income, nor used in itemized deductions. Contact your accountant, account custodian or financial manager for more information.
Legislation passed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, eliminates the requirement to take Required Minimum Distributions for 2020.
