2013 may be your last chance for a “charitable IRA rollover”

If you’re age 70½ or older, you can make a direct contribution — up to
$100,000 — from your IRA to a qualified charitable organization in 2013 without
owing any income tax on the distribution. This “charitable IRA rollover” can be
used to satisfy required minimum distributions.

The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (ATRA) revived this opportunity, but
only for 2012 and 2013. So if you’d like to make a charitable IRA rollover,
consider doing so this year in case the opportunity isn’t extended. If you
already took advantage of the ATRA provision that allowed a charitable rollover
made in January 2013 to be treated for tax purposes as if it had been made Dec.
31, 2012, you can make another $100,000 rollover this year for 2013 tax
purposes.
