IRA Rollover Gifts - University of Florida Foundation, Inc. charitable planning opportunity for the 2015 tax year The law allows charitably minded individuals a golden opportunity to make gifts directly from their IRAs and exclude the amount of their gifts from gross income The following requirements must be met The donor must be 70 1 2 years of age or older The transfers must go directly from the IRA to qualified charities Gifts cannot exceed 100 000 per taxpayer per year Gifts must be outright not to donor advised funds charitable remainder trusts or for charitable gift annuities Without this provision if an individual withdrew up to 100 000 from his or her IRA and contributed it to charity he or she would first have to include the 100 000 in his or her income The individual would also be treated as having made a charitable contribution for the amount donated to charity However IRS rules limit the amount of charitable contributions of cash that can be deducted in a given year to 50 of adjusted gross income Therefore without the provision it is possible that an IRA gift would not result in a wash and the donor might incur extra taxes as the result of the gift The new provision ensures that problem will not occur A gift from your IRA would count against the minimum distribution you would be required to take from your IRA in the future So who benefits from this old provision The law presents a wonderful opportunity for individuals to utilize their IRAs creatively to accomplish special philanthropic objectives Individuals who usually give up to 50 of their adjusted gross income AGI the ceiling on the allowable charitable deduction for any year can now give up to 100 000 more from their IRA accounts which is not subject to this limitation or taxed
