Moye White estate planning attorney Heidi Gassman recently spoke with The Denver Foundation to discuss Qualified Charitable Distributions with recent legislation increasing the required minimum distribution age to 73 for 2023.
An excerpt from The Denver Foundation article is below:
Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs), also called “IRA charitable distributions” or “IRA charitable rollovers,” are an increasingly popular and flexible tool for driving impact. They allow those 70½ years old or older to donate up to $100,000 directly from their traditional IRA to qualified nonprofits instead of taking the income. These gifts can satisfy the required minimum distribution (RMD) amounts if a person has passed their RMD required start date.
“Qualified Charitable Distributions are a great way to unburden overfunded IRAs. I recommend them to clients aged 70½ plus, with over $1.5 million in an IRA,” said Heidi Gassman. “While they may be a limited-use tool, they are perfect for certain clients who want to contribute to something that matters to them.”
