Qualified Charitable Distributions/IRA Rollover

Also known as a “charitable IRA rollover,” a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) allows individuals age 70½ or older to authorize their administrator to directly transfer up to $100,000 annually from their individual retirement account (IRA) to qualified charities, tax-free. If you are age 72 or older, the amount you transfer can satisfy all or part of your required minimum distribution.
