The IRA Charitable Rollover is now PERMANENT! 

The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015, which passed Congress and signed into law by the president on December 18, 2015, made permanent what is popularly known as the IRA charitable rollover.

Individual taxpayers can transfer up to $100,000 each year to a charity without it being treated as a taxable distribution. 

To make an IRA charitable rollover gift:

  • The donor must be 70 ½ or older.
  • The gift must be made directly from the IRA to an eligible charitable organization.
  • Gifts to all charities combined cannot exceed a total of $100,000 per taxpayer for the year.
  • The gift is not included in taxable income, and no charitable deduction is allowed.
  • The gift can be made only from an IRA.  Gifts from 401(k), 403 (b), and 457 plans are not permitted.
