Under federal tax law, a donor aged 70½ or older may make charitable distributions directly from his or her IRA to Cheshire Academy without incurring taxable income. The gift must come directly from the donor’s IRA administrator to the Academy and can satisfy all or some portion of the required minimum distribution for the year. While there is no charitable deduction for such a gift, the donor avoids payment of income tax on the required minimum distribution that would otherwise be paid to him or her. The total of an individual’s rollover gifts in any one calendar year cannot exceed $100,000.
