Another method of donation is, individual tax payers with traditional Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA) that are wanting to reduce their tax burden because you’re required to start taking the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) can have their IRA account trustee transfer funds directly to a Qualified Charity. Please consult your tax accountant or preparer to see if you’re eligible to use the Qualified Charitable Donation (QCD). The Internal Revenue Service allows the taxpayer to reduce their taxable income (the QCD amount counts towards the total RMD amount) while they support a qualifying charitable organizations of their choice. See IRS Tax Tip 2022-171, November 8, 2022 for further details. Please contact us (or your IRA bank account trustee) using the online form to exchange and provide the necessary bank account information to complete the QCD transfer donation.
