Act Now to Take Advantage of IRA Charitable Rollover for 2014

The Charitable IRA Rollover is now law. Due to the short window in which you can complete an IRA Charitable Rollover, we thought it important to share this information with you immediately.

The provision allows individuals age 70½ or older to make tax-free gifts totaling up to $100,000 from a traditional IRA account directly to The Holton-Arms School, provided they are completed by 12/31. If your spouse has IRA accounts, you may each make gifts of up to $100,000 from these accounts. While you cannot claim a charitable deduction for IRA gifts, this distribution from your IRA counts toward your minimum required distribution for the account and does not trigger income tax for you. It is a tax-free transfer from the IRA account directly to The Holton-Arms School.

In order to complete an IRA Charitable Rollover for 2014, please contact your IRA provider for exact instructions. Such transactions usually take a few weeks, but the provider should be able to fast-track such a transaction because Congress and the President acted so late this year. Here's a sample letter of instruction that you can edit and send to your IRA provider. Your provider should tell you the best way to send the letter of instruction so it can be processed in time.

If you need additional assistance, please contact our office. If you do plan to complete an IRA Charitable Rollover for The Holton-Arms School please let us know so that we can look for it. Thank you for considering a gift to support our work this year. Your dedication and support are sincerely appreciated.
